After a year off due to the COVID-19 Pandemic the North Attleboro Firefighters Kids Day Association is holing its 40th annual Kids Day Carnival at the North Attleborough Middle School at 520 Landry Ave.

The North Attleboro Firefighters Kids Association is a non-profit organization the started in 1980. The mission of the organization is to raise funds to donate back to the community for those who need it the most. The main source of income is the Associations four day event which has been held in July each year. In its entire 41-year existence, last year was the first time in its history that the whole event was called off.

The four day event consist of food, music, carnival rides, a firetruck parade, fireworks, and many other activities for the entire family to enjoy. This year will feature most of the same activities as previous years with a few changes due to last-minute planning.

Some of these changes include only one night of fireworks instead of two on Saturday night (weather permitting), no 5K road race, and a reduced food menu.

The four day event is free of charge to get in. It is a family friendly event and no alcohol is allowed or sold for consumption. Also as per town bylaw dogs and other animals are not permitted to be on the field or in the carnival at any time.
