Siouxland Kids Events January 2017

We apologize for the long hiatus. Family commitments and health concerns rendered our writers unable to keep up with this blog this fall, but all are doing well now and hope to avoid such gaps in the future. 

Each month we will bring you info on events for kids in the Siouxland Area. If you know of one we have missed, please leave us a comment or send us an email. We will update our lists throughout the month as we hear of new events, so check back often for the latest scoop! We also recommend checking out our Event Lists tab to find our lists for other months!
