Kids Fest Celebrates Great Outdoors

The Greater Milford Boys & Girls Club celebrated “National Get Outdoors Day” on Saturday June 8 with their annual Be Great 5K Run/Walk and Kids’ Fest event. Originally held at the Delaware State Fair Grounds, this year’s event was held on the grounds of the Greater Milford Boys & Girls Club, located at 101 Delaware Veterans Boulevard off Airport Road in Milford. The day underscored the connection to natural resources through play and creative activities.

Beginning the day with the Be Great 5K Run/Walk, families joined the community in raising funds to benefit the Greater Milford Boys & Girls Club, whose mission is to create a positive, strong future for all children. Serving families in both Kent and Sussex Counties, the Club ensures that children experience guidance, mentoring and other positive influences that help mold the course of their lives. All monies raised through the Be Great 5K Run/Walk will be matched by The Boys & Girls Club of Delaware.

“It was exciting to see the Milford community come out to support the Boys & Girls Club and more importantly support our mission to serve all of the children in Milford,” commented Tod Van Eyken, Director of the Greater Milford Boys & Girls Club. “I am looking forward to working with the community to make this event even bigger and better next year.”

Kids Fest “A Day for Kids” festivities kicked off after the race was complete and featured pony and cart rides; an array of huge inflatables including bounces, slides and a maze; an obstacle course; carnival games, and a train ride. A Youth Talent Showcase presented an opportunity for gifted young people to “strut their stuff” before an appreciative audience as entertainment throughout the day will included clowns, jugglers, magicians and familiar characters.
