Children's Day Celebration


Children's Day: one-of-a-kind celebration

“Children's Day comes straight out of the heart of Texas,” said Ely Banuet Rodriguez, founder and president of the full day of free entertainment, fun and food for children from pre-kindergartenage-middle school held each spring in Marble Falls.

The 18th annual Children's Day on April 21, again will fill Johnson Park, the city's Lone Star Legacy Park at 230 Ave J, with the joyful sound of children having safe and free family fun from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

That doesn't happen without support and sponsors to assist more than 400 volunteers with the event are welcome. Likewise, community organizations, schools, churches, businesses and individuals are welcomed into the fold to provide the fun-filled day.


McDermott to perform at Children's Day

This year, a national star of the world of kids — Joe McDermott – will take the Johnson Park amphitheater during Children's Day Saturday, April 15.

The 17th annual Marble Falls event will be going on from 10 a.m. with opening ceremonies and the balloon release to 3 p.m. when prize drawings should be complete.

McDermott is scheduled for 11 a.m., compliments of the Marble Falls Library.

“We have tried to get him for a performance for years,” said Misty Smith, Youth Services librarian. “He is just so popular. His songs for children are catchy and funny. You can see him on YouTube and he has a fifth CD coming out with its own coloring book.”

For the unitiated, a person can tap in to a taste of McDermott's work on YouTube where the video for his all-time kid favorite, “Kitty Fight Song,” plays. That is, if you haven't heard the tune already on XM Radio where it is loved.
