Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue’s Annual Kids’ Day event has taken place in Kitsap County for decades and has grown to such popularity that citizens “just know” to be at the fairgrounds on the first Saturday of June.
“The event is 100% free and we pride ourselves on offering life safety messages while providing entertainment and educational opportunities with our amazing community partners,” said Ileana LiMarzi, PIO and Kids’ Day Coordinator for CKFR. “Canceling our 35th Kids’ Day was a difficult decision.”
Approximately 4,000 people attend the nearly 5 hour event each year and are treated to live fire and car extrication demonstrations, over 40 booths, bounce houses, hot dogs grilled by firefighters, watching Airlift Northwest land, an opportunity to get a free, properly fitted bike helmet, and much more.
“The response I’ve received so far to this decision has been positive. People understand the changes that need to be made in the world right now. We’re all in this situation together and we’ll gather to celebrate 35 years next June,” said PIO LiMarzi.
Kids’ Day will take place on June 5, 2021
