Family Fest still has spaces for vendors

About 34 vendors have registered to participate in the 2013 Family Fest 10 a.m.-2 p.m. April 6; however, the planning committee is urging more area organizations, agencies and businesses to sign up.

For-profit groups can register at $25 with a table provided. Non-profit groups can register free, but they must provide their own tables.

Hosted by Tiffin YMCA, the theme of the event is “Let’s Get Moving Together.” Participants are encouraged to plan a demonstration, activity or free materials to attract visitors to their tables.

Food vendors also are welcome, but electrical service is limited. Food already planned includes sandwiches, chips, fruit, pepperoni rolls and beverages.

The committe would like to have registrations by their final meeting March 22 so a floor plan can be created.
