Community Events & Festivals
MSU Billings Extended Campus works with the Downtown Billings Association (DBA), nonprofit organizations, and businesses to help bring excitement and enthusiasm to downtown through various family-friendly community events and festivals.
The Kid Zone: MSUB Extended Campus and the Center for Children and Families will provide “The Kid Zone” at this year’s Strawberry Festival in downtown Billings Saturday, June 14th. From 8 am until 2 pm, bring your child to participate in any of these FREE activities:
- face painting
- create your own pinwheel
- make a strawberry cup
- design a bracelet
- do a little coloring
- and help decorate our tablecloth with strawberries
The YMCA will show parents and kids how to Zumba!
We hope to see you there!
The Kid Zone: In 2013, over 800 pumpkins were picked and decorated by children of all ages. Afterwards they made paper pumpkins, made their own painting with fall apples and gourds from the Good Earth Market, had the opportunity to get their faces painted, and learned all about healthy eating and fun activities from the YMCA. Thank you Center for Children and Families and Valley Federal Credit Union!
Be sure to join the second Saturday in October (October 11, 2014) for the next Harvest Fest!
