"We've been pumping a lot," Waylander said. "But we love this stuff."
Based on previous years results, his crew had brought enough treatments for about 100 kids. It didn't look like it was going to be enough.
In fact, Health Connect's 12th annual Family Fun Festival Saturday at the Sioux Falls Coliseum was a stealth health fair. Before a kid knew it he or she was getting a dental flouride treatment and a blood pressure screening in addition to a Spiderman or butterfly cheek art.
The festival has been around town throughout its history. It formerly took place in the fall at the Bird Cage until the Canaries made the playoffs one year and needed the venue. It spent a few years at Lincoln High School and has been at the Coliseum three years. A nearly overflow crowd Saturday testified to the fact the festival has about outgrown its current home, and another move is planned.
About 75 percent of what was available Saturday was information directed to parents, Health Connect CEO Fran Rice said.
Augustana College senior nursing students were providing blood pressure screenings. Amazingly, in a room full of the presumably unclogged blood vessels of children "we have seen a few that are a little higher than we like," Abby Waylander said of the readings they were finding. This provided the students an opportunity to speak to parents about the benefits of exercise and healthy eating, she said. However the steady line of kids waiting to be fitted with a blood pressure cuff was taxing the future health care professionals.
"This is a fantastic event for families," said Jean Gross before launching into a rote recital of the triad of teeth, bacteria and sugar needed to produce cavities.

"It's lucky we came," Tonya Dillon said. The screening disclosed an issue with her daughter Sara's teeth that will require another visit to the dentist.
After stopping at her table near the door, parents with children in tow were directed by Gross to the University of South Dakota Dental Hygiene program's station across the room and next to the bouncy house. Here about a dozen USD students swabbed the teeth of surprisingly uncomplaining kids with a flouride and varnish solution that would help restore minerals to teeth at risk for cavities, according to Dr. J. Graham Smith, the USD program supervisor.
family fun," she said. Progress through the line was slow, and they were also having to gauge that closely.
"I didn't even have to think about it," the Delta Dental regional educator acknowledged of her presentation. "I've been doing it for 30 years."
full of calf ration, a calf bottle and flyers about dairy cattle. "A lot of them want to see what cows look like," she said. The festival was outside the realm of her usual princess duties, said Souza, a South Dakota State University student. But she added "this is really fun."
As they waited in line for clown tied balloon animals with their children Eli and Samantha, Travis and Tiffany Longelin remarked on the amount of health related information they had taken in.

The festival featured royalty on the order of Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee. There were tiara's seemingly everywhere. One was perched on the head of Rachel Gale. She and the other crowned heads from South Dakota Junior High, High School and Collegiate Pageants were delivering an anti bullying message. When not reigning over events like the festival, Gale is a nursing student at the University of Sioux Falls. But the veteran of Miss Teen South Dakota and Miss Super Model USA pageants said she was eager to deliver the anti bullying message.
Among the festival activities, one that didn't involve surreptitiously slipping health Converse Low Tops Blue related information to kids was face painting. Ellie Dahm, Raeann Van Drongelen and Sophie Gordon, from the Lincoln High School Serve and Learn Student Association, were the artists. They were learning their craft on the fly.
"These two need a nap soon," he said.
"I ran on a platform against bullying teens with disabilities," she said.
"It's a secret. To be announced," Rice says of the festival's new location.
"The fun part's for kids."
