Successful and fun Day for Kidsday for kids 3

Thanks to everyone who came out and helped make Saturday’s Day for Kids a fun and successful event. Hundreds of community members and their families came out to the Martin V. Smith Youth Center Sept. 21 to celebrate Kids!

The free event had games, prizes, face painting, jolly jumpers, laser tag, Gamez on Wheelz, food and music for families. There was also a bubble garden, petting zoo, exotic birds, black dragon reptiles,day for kids 1 a rock wall, and arts and crafts for children. The Voices of Hope Choir performed throughout the day, the Reptile Family put on a live reptile show, Kealoha and Company performed a Polynesian Floor Show and BGCOP’s own Soul Steppers showed off their moves.

Families visited the many information booths and took home some important information about community services available to them.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of America created the annual “Day for Kids” event in 2005 to strengthen relationships between positive adults and kids by educating them on the importance of spending meaningful time together.
