There will be something for every member of the family including those with special needs at the seventh annual Kildare Play Day on Saturday September 22 at Aras Chill Dara in Naas.
Play Day is a free family event run by Kildare County Council in conjunction with the Department of Children and Youth Affairs. It promotes the idea of play in all its forms; leisure and recreation are very important for all members of society.
Kildare County Council works with staff, volunteers, workshop facilitators, entertainers, emergency services and other stakeholders to deliver the best possible programme on the day.
"The 2018 event includes five live stage acts, 11 outdoor events, 19 indoor attractions and accessible features like a sensory suite for different age groups and mobile accessible toilets. 3,000 people attended last year so we're looking forward to another busy day at the civic campus in Devoy Park," said a council spokesperson.
The event starts at 12 midday and continues until 5 pm.
"Kildare County Council would like to extend a warm invitation to you and your family to join us at this year's event. There is free parking on site and food and drinks will be available to purchase. We hope to see you there," she added.
