North Attleboro Kids Day returns Thursday | Local News
NORTH ATTLEBORO – This is something kids – and kids at heart – have been waiting for over a year.
After the coronavirus pandemic and emergency assembly rules forced its cancellation last July, Kids Day is back for its 40th edition. The event takes place Thursday through Sunday at North Attleboro Middle School on Landry Avenue.
It will include food, music, rides, a fire engine parade, fireworks and many other family activities.
Most of the activities from previous years will be back, with some changes due to last-minute planning, according to the North Attleboro Firefighters Association, which hosts the event.
There will only be one night of fireworks instead of two. They will take place on Saturday, weather permitting. The 5 km road race is canceled and there will be a reduced food menu.
Free entry. As a family event, no alcohol is allowed or sold for consumption. In addition, in accordance with municipal bylaws, dogs and other animals are not allowed to be on the grounds or at the carnival at all times.
The fire engine parade begins at Mason Field at 11 a.m. on Saturday and will continue straight down Elm Street toward downtown and onto Washington Street. You will have to cross Route 1 on the right at Coffee Connection to Elmwood Street and go up Elmwood to Mt. street of hope. From there it will continue right up Mt. Hope to Landry Avenue, then conclude in college.
Credit and debit cards are accepted at the event catering tent. All events are subject to change and will take place weather permitting.
The North Attleboro Firefighters Kids Association is a non-profit organization founded in 1980. The mission is to raise money to donate to the community for those who need it most.
The main source of income is Children’s Day, which takes place every year in July. Last year was the first time the entire event had been canceled, according to organizers.
Donations can be made to: North Attleboro Firefighters Kids Day Association, PO Box 3215, North Attleboro, MA, 02761. Donate to the attention of “Fireworks”.
Donations can also be made by credit or debit card on the event website.
