El día del niño/Children's Day
El día del niño is an event to celebrate childhood and literacy for the entire family. It is a multicultural celebration of children, families, and reading that culminates every year on April 30. The celebration emphasizes the importance of advocating literacy for children of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds. Last year, more than 350 children and families participated in this event.
Children will enjoy indoor and outdoor activities including the following: storytelling in French, Spanish, German, Arabic, Russian, Chinese, Korean, Portuguese, Turkish, English, and Japanese. Mexican ballet folklórico, clowns, sports, snacks, chalk paint, hula hoops, bubbles, ice cream and sodas, sand castle building, bounce house, face painting, and different tables with a variety of crafts. Also, every kid that attend the event will receive a free book.
