Fun things for kids, free
YMCAs across the nation will hold free and fun activities for kids on Saturday as part of Healthy Kids Day. The event “celebrates making fitness fun, and introduces kids to an array of YMCA programs and tools that teach healthy behaviors and healthy ways to play,” according to the group.
In Rockland, events will be held at two sites. Activities will start at the Y’s Beginnings Nursery School, 18 Parkside Drive, Suffern at 10 a.m.
At noon, the main YMCA center at 35 South Broadway in downtown Nyack will host Jeffrey Friedberg of the Bossy Frog Band. A one-mile fun walk starts at 1 p.m., all youth walkers will receive a free t-shirt.
Other activities planned include: sports and games, a family boot camp, arts & crafts, healthy snacks, face painting and a 2-hour family swim that begins at 2:45 p.m.
Admission is free, but YMCA staff will be collecting non-perishable food items for donation to People to People.
