Unity One Credit Union hosted Kidtoberfest, a day of magic and mischief, on Saturday, October 22, at its North Tarrant branch. The highlight of the event, a magic show by Landon Stark who was featured on PBS and NBC, drew over 500 guests to the branch.
Stark brought all the spectacle and excitement of the big top with a twist of humor all his own. He utilized illusions, circus arts and sideshow performances to bring the stage to life.
“This event was a great way to bring the community together to teach them that banking can be fun, even magical at times. We take great pride in serving the communities in which we live and work. This was another great opportunity for us to provide a free family-oriented event for the community,” said Kathy Jones, branch manager at Unity One’s North Tarrant branch.
Attendees were also treated to free grilled cheese from Lee’s Grilled Cheese food truck, a pumpkin patch and decorating station, face painting and balloon animals.
