Auburn Parks, Arts and Recreation gears up for its annual KidsDay event Tuesday, June 25, at Les Gove Park, 910 Ninth St. SE.

The free event – which runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. – features a variety of inflatable rides, children’s activities, live stage entertainment, mini golf, hands-on art activities, food concessions, more than 120 information/activity vendors and a food court.

Back again are the popular bungee trampolines, free face painting and an expanded touch-a-truck display. Also returning this year is the ballistic swing – the mother of all carnival rides.

Brian Vogan and His Good Buddies perform on stage, followed by Micah and Me, Eric Herman and the Puppy Dogs, magician Louie Foxx and others. The King County Library System presents Herman’s performance at 1:30 p.m. Vogan’s performance is sponsored in part by 4Culture.

ArtRageous Zone returns for those who would like to work alongside professional artists to create their own masterpieces to take home. Other free options are the touch-a-truck, the Kids’ Safety Zone, and the 5 & Under Indoor Playground. Paid attractions include the bungee trampolines, a paint ball target zone, the Super Slide, Nerf Laser Tag and Old Growth Tree Climbing.

KidsDay’s primary audience is children ages 3-10 years of age.

Auburn’s KidsDay began in 1985 and has increased in popularity ever since. New entertainment and activities are added each year.
