Barnyard Bash a Success
First Choice America hosted its annual Cool Kids Fun
Days with a theme of “Barnyard Bash”. During the 4
day event, children were entertained with inflatable
amusements and games. Each child received a goody
bag, and were treated to hot dogs, freeze pops and
popcorn. Local radio station, FROGGY, was on hand
for a Live Action Broadcast. FROGGY brought Mister
Froggy, who was joined by Kenny the Kangaroo,
WTOV9’s Snowbird and a loveable cow. The festive
atmosphere was topped off with great prizes, which
included baskets of toys, Kennywood tickets, and
Washington Wild Things tickets.
During these fun days, safety lessons were taught by
local police, sheriff, and fire departments.
Chester and Weirton events presented a canine
officer show with the local deputies and police
force, while the Steubenville kids learned lessons
in drinking and driving through impaired goggles.
Wheeling and Weirton also had their fire departments
bring smokehouses to teach the children fire safety.
The Barnyard Bash was brought to local neighborhoods
in Chester, Steubenville, Wheeling and Weirton. All
four days were successful, which was measured by the
smiles on the children’s faces!
