Kids can run wild with bounce houses, pony rides and rock climbing later this month, all for free.
Children’s Day, put on by the South Whidbey Parks & Recreation District, will last from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22. Lunch, also free, is included as part of the festivities. About 30 interactive booths, sponsored by service agencies, nonprofits and businesses that support children and families, will be at the park.
Children’s Day is supported by NAS Whidbey Island, Island County Public Health, Childcare Resource & Referral, Sno-Isle Libraries, Good Cheer, United Way of Island County, Kiwanis of South Whidbey, Foundation for Early Learning, Thrive-By-Five, Walmart, South Whidbey Children’s Center, Island County Partners for Youth Children, private donors and volunteers.
Organizers encourage families with young children to join the fun and ask that dogs remain at home.
