When I was a kid, having a great time was pale in comparison to what's available for kids in the Stateline Saturday, February 28. When I was a kid, a quarter at the local department store got you a ride on a mechanical horse that would rock. That was the rush. In just a few days, Stateline area kids will enjoy Kidabaloo. It's enough to make you wish you were a kid again. What is Kidabaloo? 

Kidabaloo is a jamboree packed with fun and exciting games, activities. and entertainment. Bounce through castles, hang out with your favorite characters and take silly pictures all in a fun, kid-friendly place, the Hononegah High School Dome.

There will be entertainment from The Balloon Guy, our wondering balloon artist, Magician Zack Percell, our DJ Bubble Party where you can dance in bubbles to your favorite tunes, Strolling Fairy Tale Characters where you can meet your favorite princesses and more.
