As a mini heat wave descended on Kitsap Friday and Saturday it did little to deter people from Kids Day held June 7 at the Presidents Hall at Kitsap County Fairgrounds.
We thought it was very successful, said Lindsy Ingram, public educator for Central Kitsap Fire & Rescue who organized the event.
About 5,000 people passed through the 18th annual event, which highlighted safety lessens for kids of all ages. The event included a touch a truck area and entertainment from Cowboy Buck and Elizabeth.
We had a beautiful sunny day that helped make our 18th annual Kids Day a huge success, said CKFR Chief Ken Burdette.
We received lots of positive comments from both kids and adults that they learned lots and had a great time. We wouldnt be able to offer this free community event without the support of the sponsors, participants, other Kitsap County Fire departments and our own CKFR personnel.
