NAMPA — Rows of colorful stands sheltered families from the sun as they sat by their merchandise. From handmade jewelry to petting dogs for a quarter, kids saw their business ideas come to life on Saturday.
The first of its kind in downtown Nampa, the Kid Business Fair hosted 90 families and over 100 attendees.
Paul Dille founded the event after hearing about the idea in Utah. When he came home to Nampa and looked for something similar, he couldn’t find anything.
“I immediately Googled for one in Idaho, and there’s some in southern Idaho and eastern Idaho, but none around here. So we thought, ‘hey, we’ll just put it together and make it happen,’” Dille said.
