The Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio County Hesperia Service Area and Hesperia Recreation and Park District co-sponsored the second annual Hesperia Kids Fest event at the Epicentre on Saturday, Aug. 23.


The event featured more than 30 booths offering youth programs for all ages. Also, local public safety personnel offered child car seat safety checks, children's fingerprinting and more. Area firefighters also barbecue some tasty hot dogs and bratwurst.


After only little more than an hour, Girl Scout signups were going very well.


"We've already started two more troops," said Denise La Page, who served as the Girl Scout coordinator with Kristi Heuck.
