Free rock climbing for kids, games and activities, as well as chances to win prizes, will be some of the highlights of this year's SportsFest 2013, a sports and fitness showcase sponsored by the Cary Grove Area Chamber of Commerce.

The event will be held from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 18, in the Feinberg Court Business District, off Route 14 and Feinberg Drive in Cary.

The event, which last year attracted more than 2,000 attendees, is a family-friendly outing for local residents. Vendors include local youth sports clubs such as Cary Grove Junior Trojan Youth Football, Cary Youth Baseball, Cary Soccer Association, Cary Matmen Wrestlers and others, as well as many sports and fitness-related businesses and resources.

Throughout the day, many sports and fitness vendors will be offering free games for kids, free raffles and giveaways. A vendor raffle conducted by the chamber will offer a grand prize of six skybox seat tickets to the Cubs vs. Pirates Sept. 23 game, sponsored by Sage Products Inc., a $1,000 value.

An obstacle course challenge for kids sponsored by New Balance Athletic Shoes, Crystal Lake, will award a grand prize of a new bike from Walmart.

The event will also feature outdoor entertainment and food, and demonstrations all day from cheerleading to Jazzercise and karate.
