Cotton candy, crowns and canine kisses – there was plenty of fun to be had at Sauk Valley Community College’s 35th annual Child Fair on Saturday, and it was a good day to feel all warm and fuzzy. As winds whipped and snow fell outside, kids stayed nice and warm inside the college, where they enjoyed some free fun – a petting zoo, emergency vehicle displays, educational activities, circus acts and more. The annual event attracts more than 1,000 people each year and features more than 40 exhibit booths with hands-on activities, games and prizes.
