Kidabaloo is not only a lot of fun for families, but it is an event that gives back. A portion of Kidabaloo admission is donated to Relay for Life, and this year's Kidabaloo will also feature a silent auction for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Here are some of the great items that will be auctioned off during Kidabaloo:

  • Tickets to see Jerrod Niemann at the Menards NHRA Heartland Nationals in Topeka, AND backstage meet and greet passes.
  • An autographed 8 x 10 photo of Derrick Johnson from the Kansas City Chiefs.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has been providing care to children from all over the world since opening in 1962. St. Jude leads the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food. Treatments invented at St. Jude are shared freely with hospitals everywhere, and have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since the hospital opened.

Kidabaloo is from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 29, at the Ag-Building on the Missouri State Fairgrounds. Kidabaloo is a fun-filled festival for the whole family to enjoy, kids games, seven inflatables, bounce houses and entertainment! Tickets are $5 and are available at the door.
