Kids from Meridian, Mississippi and the surrounding area didn't let the rain stop them from having fun in the park on Saturday!
The city of Meridian's Parks and Recreation Department hosted its fourth annual Nickelodeon Worldwide Day Of Play event on Saturday 17th September 2016. Families and kids enjoyed free food, a splash pad, bounce houses, along with games prizes and other fun activities at the event, held at Highland Park.
"We are soaked, the kids were out here having a good time. They won prizes it was really a great day at the park," Parks and Recreation Supervisor Aleasha Jordan told ABC11.
Nickelodeon's Worldwide Day Of Play event at Highland Park was co-sponsored by the Boys and Girls Club in Meridian.
This summer, Nickelodeon celebrated kids' love of play by holding "Road to Worldwide Day of Play" events in six cities across the USA (Las Vegas, Nevada; Kalamazoo, Michigan; Jacksonville, Florida; Dallas, Texas; Far South Side, Chicago; and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma) with a record number of kids and partners to encourage kids to get outside and get active. The initiative culminated with Nickelodeon's 13th annual "Worldwide Day of Play" event on Saturday 17th September 2016, when the network suspended programming from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. (ET/PT) and hosted grassroots activities with its partners across the U.S. to celebrate play in order to encourage kids to get up, get out and get active.
