Kids Day is an annual event that takes place in Crown Heights Brooklyn. One stretch of Franklin Avenue from Sterling Place to Park Place is converted into a carnival for a day with games, rides, prizes and more. And best of all IT’S COMPLETELY FREE!!!
Kevin Phillip started this event in 2008 in a vacant lot. Now it takes up an entire block on Franklin Avenue and is put on with the help of the Crow Hill Community Association (CHCA) and The Franklin Avenue Merchants Association (FAM). The theme this year is “Coney Island” and we will be bringing some of the iconic rides from everyone’s favorite Brooklyn theme park right to Franklin Avenue.
Not everyone in our community has money for, or access to these types of events, that is why it's so important for us to make Kids Day 100% free and accessible to everyone. We still need $6500 to pay for permits, rentals, and prizes (and to cover the Kickstarter and Amazon fees). The Crow Hill Community Association is a 5013C, so your donation is completely tax deductible!
Last year was a huge success, and this year we want to top that! Donations of any and all sizes are greatly appreciated. Kids Day is an important event that brings our community together and we hope everyone can make it out on July 21st to take part in this amazing fun filled day!
Here is a sneak peak at some of the rewards!
