    Learn to “Get Fit” at the Children's Museum Tucson’s annual fitness fair What do goats, tomato seeds, jumping jacks and worm composting have in common?

    Not only can they all be part of a healthy lifestyle, but they will all play a role in the annual Let’s Ge t Fit Health and Wellness Fair at the Children’s Museum Tucson on Saturday, April 13, at 200 S. Sixth Ave.

    Families can learn about the importance of incorporating aspects of healthful living into their lifestyles, from animal therapy, to gardening and exercise and cooking demonstrations. There will be an obstacle course for small cyclists, games, crafts, face painting and information on nutritious eating.

    The event will take place on the courtyard and lawn along 6th Avenue between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

    Even better: the Museum will offer free admission all day long, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.

    The Pima County Health Department will offer demonstrations on what a healthy plate of food should look like.

    “The Pima County Health Department is pro ud to sponsor and support the Let’s Get Fit event to highlight the multitude of resources here locally for families who are seeking ways to stay fit and healthy,” said Dr. Francisco García, the Pima County Public Health Director. “It is critical to reach children at a young age and support the development of healthy habits that will stay wit h them throughout their lives.”
