The North Hawai’i Community Hospital will host its annual Waimea Healthy Keiki Fest on April 16.

From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the 17th annual event will take place at the Parker Ranch Center. Children and their families can participate in over 30 free hands-on activities that involve fitness, health, nutrition, and safety.

NHCH’s Trauma Team will offer free bicycle helmets to children. Other activities include glow monster hand hygiene education, a bike safety course, pedal power smoothie bike, edible art, car seat fitting, and collage art.

Children in attendance will receive a “passport” to track their participation throughout the festival, which will earn each child a chance to rock climb or use the bounce house.

The event is hosted by NHCH and Tutu’s House.
