  • More than 10,000 prizes from dozens of exhibitors – No one leaves empty-handed!
  • Mini car racing

  • Games, face painting, clowns, and your favorite local mascots
  • Gobs of great entertainment, food, and so much more!

Come enjoy an action-packed day the whole family will enjoy. And remember, the best part about Kids’ Day is…it’s FREE!
