POLL: What Costumed Character Would You Like to See at Bay Area KidFest?

March 21, 2014 19:30 pm · 35 comments


Claycord.com has been a proud sponsor of Bay Area KidFest for the past six years, and we’d like to to take a minute to let us know what costumed character you’d like to see when KidFest returns to Concord in May.

When Bay Area KidFest began in 1990 the featured attraction was Michelangelo of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In the years since KidFest has had costumed characters to interact with kids of all ages at the Memorial Day Weekend festival.

Over the years SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer and her sidekick Diego, Patrick, Bart Simpson, Angelica and other superstars from Nickelodeon and the Cartoon Network have been on hand to greet KidFest attendees.

For the 25th edition of KidFest this year Bay Area Festivals and the sponsor of the special guests, Astound Broadband, are seeking input from readers of Claycord to determine which superstars to have that weekend.

We’d like you to vote for the character you’d most like to meet at KidFest (it’s likely the top 2 vote getters will be in Concord May 24-26).

The choices are Dora the Explorer, Finn & Jake of Adventure Time, Kai-Lan of Ni Hao, Kai-Lan, Scooby-Doo and SpongeBob SquarePants.

Best t-shirt I ever saw had a picture of a T-Rex with a purple tail hanging out of it’s mouth and the caption, “I Loved Barney”. Wish I would have bought one.

Are those your good-looking kids, Mayor? They would seem about the ages that I would guess that your kids are.

CLAYCORD.com March 22, 2014 at 4:45 PM

No waverunner, those are Jay Bedecarre’s sons.

C’mon Finn and Jake! It’s the power of friendship:)

plot twist: its a pic of the mayor and his brother!

I think spiderman would be great for the kids, but I don’t thinks he’s politically correct anymore. If someone shoots webbing out of his armpits into your eye, I think you could be sued these days. =)

Eastbayy March 22, 2014 at 9:55 PM

How about Lou Seal from the Giants. That should be one of the options : )

Rose Garden March 23, 2014 at 11:33 AM
