Jacob (left) and brother Emerson Evans of Lititz were hooked on pretzels at the 2017 Pretzel Fest. They both succeeded in snagging pretzels from the Gone Pretzelin’ game at the Main Street Peddler, one of the Minute to Win It games formerly held at Pretzel Fest. This year, a special free day just for kids, which includes Miniute to Win It games, will be held May 11 in Lititz Springs Park.

A day for kids

Instead of running Minute to Win It type games at Pretzel Fest as in the past, Kiwanis will fund and run a Kids Free Fun Day in-the-Park on at Lititz Springs Park on Saturday, May 11.

This fun-filled event for kids 12 years and younger will include: games that are fun to do and hilarious to watch, an obstacle course sponsored by Hartz Physical Therapy, a bounce house, face painting, and prizes. Snacks include: Kunzler soft pretzel wrapped hot dogs, Greco’s Ice Cream, Oregon Dairy cupcakes and chocolate milk, and water donated by Weis Markets, Lititz.

Free Kids Fun Day in-the-park Ticket Vouchers (one per child with adult supervision) are available at the Lititz and Manheim Township Libraries.

Plan to arrive at Bortz pavilion in the Park between 10:30 and 11 a.m. on May 11 to redeem voucher and guarantee a ticket. Tickets will be capped at 500.
