A day full of bounce houses, crafts, bubbles and pony rides is the stuff of dreams for little ones, and those dreams will come true next Saturday.
The South Whidbey Parks and Recreation District’s annual Children’s Day is back from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sept. 24 to celebrate the young families that live on the South End. Families are invited to come out to enjoy activities, games and the family atmosphere at Community Park free of charge. Lunch will be provided by Kiwanis of South Whidbey.
“It’s a big party in the park for families,” Kris Barker, executive director of the Whidbey Island Children’s Center said. “It’s a great place to meet with your friends, bounce in the bounce house and get to know local organizations.”
Children’s Day is a chance for families to familiarize themselves with the organizations that provide families with crucial resources such as financial help, free services and children’s activities. The festivities are a way for the organizations to reach out to families in a fun and free way that accommodates low income families that may not be aware of what’s available to them.
The plethora of organizations, including Island County Public Health, Sno-Isle Libraries and Partners for Young Children, will fill Community Park with more about 40 interactive booths and activities.
