The annual Kids Day on Franklin Avenue is one of ILFA's very favorite events of the year, so much so that I insisted on posting about it from Mexico while the lady and I were on our honeymoon last year (did I mention that the lady is a very tolerant individual?). If you haven't heard about the Kids Day, check out the video from 2010 and the photos from 2011. Going into its 5th year, the Kids Day offers a full afternoon of completely FREE good times for hundreds of local kids, including carnival rides and inflatable equipment, face painting, water games, food, and prizes of all sorts. Spearheaded by Kevin and Garnet Philip, Kids Day is always a community effort, one to which the Franklin Avenue Merchants contribute a huge amount of time and money. This year, after many years of low-tech fundraising, the organizers have put together a Kickstarter campaign to make the event bigger and better than ever. Check them out, and click on the widget below to make your donation to support this year's edition of this fantastic local tradition.
