AITKIN - The Northland Foundation's KIDS PLUS Program will present an extraordinary pop-up park with a Giant Jenga Game at the upcoming Aitkin Farmers' Market June 13.

The pop-up park will allow participants of all ages to test their skills in forming Giant Jenga towers as high as 6 feet using oversized wooden blocks. Hard hats will be provided for small children.

Hosted by Cheryl Meld, the pop-up park will take place on a large green indoor and outdoor carpet, with small tables and chairs for family members and friends to take part in watching the action.

Launched by the Northland Foundation in 1990, the overall goal of the KIDS PLUS Program is to improve the well-being of children and youth in northeastern Minnesota.

Meld has worked in the field of youth development and prevention for over 25 years, designing, implementing, and evaluating programs for 4-H Extension Service, Aitkin County Law Enforcement, the Juvenile Justice Program, KIDS PLUS and rural Minnesota school districts.

Hosted weekly from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot of the historic Butler Building, 301 Minnesota Ave. N., the Aitkin Farmers' Market will host the special pop-up park as part of its weekly entertainment calendar. The day will also feature the farmers' market's monthly register to win for a special food basket.

This year, sponsors for the 2015 Aitkin Farmers' Market include Brandl Motors and the Members Cooperative Credit Union. Every week, Brandl Motors will have two cars on display, while the Members Cooperative Credit Union will have its own booth. Bremer Bank is a sponsor of the SNAP/EBT program through the purchase of the coins used for purchasing food at the market.
