Winters Parent Nursery School (WPNS) is hosting its 24th annual Children’s Festival from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 23, at the Green River Venue, 4513 Putah Creek Rd. in Winters, Calif. Admission to the event is free, but there are additional costs to play games. Food and refreshments will be available for purchase at the event provided by Green River Brewing & Taproom.

There are fun, family-friendly activities planned this year including children’s carnival games and prizes, jump houses, a silent auction, and food and drinks. Three “Chance Only” ticket holders, who do not need to be present, will win one of three prizes for $1,000, $750 and $250. Tickets are $25 each and can be purchased at the school or from the family of any students currently enrolled at WPNS.

The WPNS Board is still accepting prize donations for the silent auction and seeking individuals or businesses who would like to be a WPNS/Children’s Festival Sponsor. This annual Children’s Festival is a community-based event and the main fundraiser for the year. WPNS uses the proceeds to bring in special art and science programs, purchase playground equipment, general upkeep and supplies necessary for the children’s education.

Donations are being accepted until Oct.14. Contact WPNS at 530-795-4659 if you have any questions about donating or becoming a sponsor.
