The first Kenton Kids Day was a huge success with the square filled Saturday morning with children and adults from throughout the county. The event began with a Little Fun Run (top) when Ronald McDonald led the children in a one-block trot to the fun at the courthouse. Once there, the young people found a variety of things to do, including bounce houses, games, and a brigade of emergency vehicles for them to inspect.
Jimmy Kuck, 4, was hesitant at first to leave the platform, but then enjoyed his trapeze ride as a member of the Cincinnati Circus Company helps him.
