WAITE PARK -- Area kids got to be bakers for a day as part of the Waite Park Family Fun Fest celebration.

Around 30 kids gathered at Community Park this (Thursday) afternoon to learn the art of decorating cookies, from applying the frosting to adding sprinkles thanks to the Cold Spring Bakery.

Other kid friendly events included arts and crafts and a bike safety rodeo put on by the Waite Park Police Department.

The festivities continue tomorrow (Friday) with the 6th Annual "Best of Show" car show and musical entertainment by the Holy Rocka Rollaz.

The celebration wraps up with the Grand Parade and music by Slip Twister on Saturday starting at 11:30 a.m. and a kids fishing contest at Rock Island Park Pond Sunday.
