The event will be between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Food, games and rides are planned.

Kids Day is being observed nationally and is designed to stimulate stronger relationships between adults and children by educating them on the importance and value of spending meaningful time together.

Organizers say the event provides an opportunity for every adult to take a break, celebrate and renew their commitment to children.

Nationwide, organizers expect more than 500,000 children and their families to participate in more than 1,300 events.
