Belk will hosts its bi-annual KidFest in-store event Saturday, Aug. 9, from noon to 3 p.m. at all locations. The event includes runway fashion shows featuring local children as models wearing Belk’s latest fashion trends and styles for kids. This year’s Kidfest is encouraging kids to get healthy and active, including sports games and an obstacle course, according to Belk. Other activities and entertainment will include refreshments, music, games, face painting, balloons and prizes, depending on location. Parents and legal guardians interested in having their children ages 4–12 participate as models in the KidFest fashion show in their community should contact the Belk at Aiken Mall, 2441 Whiskey Road, or by calling 642-5628 to register and obtain more information. Participating kids will receive 15 percent off any purchase in the children’s department. Customers can save up to 40 percent off the entire stock of kids apparel during the event, excluding designer collections, according to Belk.
