Kids Enjoy Free "Birthday Bash" at Wheeling Park


 The third of four Cool Kids Birthday Bashes sponsored by First Choice America was held on Thursday.    

Hundreds of kids poured into the Sonneborn Shelter at Wheeling Park, where organizers turned the area into a fun-filled zone, complete with food and entertainment.

The best part of the event, it is completely free! "It's a free day for all the kids. We have rides, Kurt James & Froggy here, free food, fun and events," said Albert Valentine, manager at the Elm Grove branch of First Choice America.

"We have inflatable's. We have the wizard ride that they can do, play baseball, basketball. A good day for them to come out and have a free activity," Wheeling office manager Tom Modra said.

The Wheeling Fire Department's safety house even made a visit, showing kids how to stay safe in case of a fire.

There is one more "Birthday Bash" scheduled for Friday at Chester City Park.
