About The Publisher: Charlotte Linde

Welcome to Cedar Rapids Macaroni KID!

Macaroni KID is a community of publishers servicing thousands of communities nationwide, each being hyper-focused. Our publishers are local parents and caregivers who know and live in the communities they write about. We specialize in providing lots of LOCAL information on events, activities, camps, classes, family-friendly resources, and fun things to do!  

This edition of Macaroni KID provides information on events, activities, and resources for families specifically in Cedar Rapids, Ely, Fairfax, Marion, Hiawatha, and surrounding communities.
