Mr. Stinky Feet headlines Kids’ Carnival at Main Street Square

Friday, May 16, 2014

RAPID CITY, SD – Main Street Square is the place for kids to be on Saturday, May 31, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for the third annual Kids’ Carnival, sponsored by Family Thrift, Prairie Market and Black Hills Parent Magazine.

Award-winning kid rocker, Mr. Stinky Feet will return to the stage. He performed at the inaugural Kids’ Carnival in 2012. He will interact with families with special songs including, “Spaghetti and Goofballs,” “Cookie Time” and “Fancy Pants Dance.”

“Mr. Stinky Feet was a hit with kids of all ages in 2012, with his captivating songs and story-telling skills,” said Megan Whitman, executive director of Main Street Square. “When the headliner is not performing, we have put together a great program of entertainment and exhibitors with children’s activities.”

Duane Reichert, “Backstage with a Rodeo Clown,” will also be on the stage with comedy skits with animals and share the dangers of being a rodeo clown, partially funded by the South Dakota Arts Council. Academy of Dance Arts will also perform.

Children may go on carriage rides, ride the Black Hills Mini Express train, or hop on a pony for a ride on Erma’s Ponies. They can also check out animals from Reptile Gardens, an 18-foot tall puppet and be mesmerized by Magic by Mark.

Dozer’s Games will be on site with a trailer of video games for all ages. There will be twisting by Ballons by Dusty, face painting by the Miss Rapid City Scholarship Foundation, and an inflatable bounce house.

Vendors include Scheels All Sports with a bean bag toss and temporary tattoos; Black Hills Parent Magazine with Black Hills coupon books; Spinchroncity with hula hoops; the Rapid City YMCA; and Youth and Family Services. Mitizi’s Books will have storytelling, and Who’s Toy House will provide a sand pit in Pedestrian Alley with a real backhoe.

The interactive fountain at Main Street Square will be on for a quick cool down.
