Roseville, Calif.- Kaiser Permanente and Roseville Arts! invite children of all ages to the Thrive Family Arts Festival this Saturday, Sept. 11, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Kaiser Permanente Roseville Medical Center.
Kids will have a messy and marvelous time as physicians and staff remove their stethoscopes and raise paint brushes for a day of fun and creativity. The event is free.
Activities for families include: Creating arts and crafts projects at booths staffed by local artists, making healthy treats, dancing, hula hoops, listening to music played by doctors, jump roping, face painting and learning that it’s fun to be healthy.
‘Our hospital serves as an anchor in the community,’ said Sandy Sharon, chief operating officer of Kaiser Permanente’s Roseville Medical Center. ‘We see this family friendly event as a perfect partnership with Roseville Arts! to help our community thrive.”
