It’s a Kids Day Celebration at the Athens Saturday Market


Parents can let kids be kids again by bringing them to Kids Day at the Athens Saturday Market on Saturday, Aug. 23, where there will be sack races, a wooden egg race and more. Children can also shake the hand that feeds them by meeting the farmers who grow the produce they eat.
The market is open from 8 a.m. to noon. Children’s activities start at 9 a.m.


There will be face painting and relays like a sack race and wooden egg race. The John Wade Keyes DAR members will offer prizes to children who can say the Pledge of Allegiance to the American Flag.
