There will be a bounce house for the children, music from Kiss Country 99.9 and a blood drive. Memorial Healthcare System will also have their mobile units for adult and child health, including child immunizations.

There will also be free food and water at the health fair, which will take place between 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. at the Tower Shops/Home Depot Shopping Plaza on University Drive between Nova Drive and Interstate 595.
