CKF&R to host Kids’ Day June 7

Central Kitsap Fire & Rescue is gearing up for its 29th annual Kids’ Day to be June 7.

Events will be at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Kids’ Day is a free fire and life safety event for kids of all ages, according to Ileana LiMarzi, CKF&R public information officer.

The event features booths inside the buildings, entertainment and food, as well as an entire outdoor area with “touch-a-truck” displays and demonstrations by CKF&R firefighters.

“Each organization that joins us puts together an engaging, interactive activity with a safety message,” LiMarzi said. “One of the biggest draws of our event is the bike helmet fitting area. We offer free bike helmets to children and adults and we make sure they’re fitted properly. We fit an average of 600 helmets at Kids’ Day.”

Activities include a fire engine bounce house and bouncy obstacle course, Navy Region Northwest fire safety house, Home Depot build station, barbecue with firefighters, live pirate show with Cap’n Arrr, free flowers from Lowe’s, live car extrication and fire suppression demonstrations, the Kitsap Regional Library bookmobile and meet Sparky, Chuck E. Cheese, and the Skipper Parrot.
