CV NfL (http://www.cvnfl.org) is a non-profit organization that focuses on preparing children ages 0 to five reach their highest potential through education and programs that encourage family involvement. Its classrooms are at six locations, including elementary schools, throughout the area."Look for us at Tropical Daze with bubbles, games, hoops, sensory tables and giveaways," says Janet Fleming, executive director of CV NfL. "We'll also have information on our fall programs. We'll be happy to talk with parents about what to expect to see in our classrooms."
Last year, almost 10,000 festivalgoers attended Tropical Daze. "This is the first year that all proceeds from Tropical Daze will go to CV NfL," says Randy Strong, Tropical Daze co-organizer and a partner with Associate Marketers, a Conejo Valley marketing and promotions agency. "CV NfL is providing a valuable service to parents with young children. The foundation children receive at CV NfL lasts a lifetime."
The festival features live surf, Hawaiian, Caribbean, Jamaican and Reggae music, a children's activity area with hands-on science displays, children's entertainment, educational games, arts and crafts and tropical birds. Admission is free.
"Tropical Daze proceeds will help buy books for our lending library, new learning materials, tricycle and bicycles and outdoor play equipment," says Fleming. "We run our programs on a tight budget so we are always grateful for a donation such as this."
Tropical Daze is presented in collaboration with the Conejo Recreation & Park District, the City of Thousand Oaks and the Greater Conejo Valley Chamber of Commerce.
