SEDALIA, Mo. – On Saturday, Aug. 13, kids can have their milk mustache picture taken with NFL alum Eddie Kennison of the Kansas City Chiefs from 1:30-2:30 p.m. at the Missouri State Fair.  The event is located in the Fair’s VIP tent across from the dairy barns, near the 16th street entrance of the fairgrounds.

Chiefs mascot KC Wolf will meet and interact with kids at the tent.

From 1-3 p.m. at the same location, kids can learn and play for free using the HOPSports system, which gets kids excited about working out. HOPSports is a unique, interactive experience for kids incorporating physical activity in a new and exciting way with exercises presented by Olympians, top celebrities and professional athletes.

Through Midwest Dairy Association, Missouri dairy farmers will sponsor the event and provide free chocolate milk to kids.

“We want kids to get moving and learn more about the role of physical activity and nutrition in a healthy lifestyle,” says Keri Olson, marketing manager with Midwest Dairy.

Attendees can also register to win items autographed by Eddie Kennison as well as a four-pack of Chiefs tickets.

Kennison played for seven years with the Kansas City Chiefs as wide receiver, and ranks in the top 10 in nearly every major Chiefs career receiving category. He also played for the St. Louis Rams from 1996 to 1999.
