North Attleborough Firefighter’s Kids Day returns for its 41st annual fundraising carnival at the North Attleborough Middle School, 520 Landry Ave., from July 21-24.

The North Attleborough Firefighters Kids Association is a non-profit organization that started in 1980. The organization’s mission is to raise funds to donate to the community for those who need it the most. The main source of income is the association’s four-day event which is held in July each year. Last year the event returned following a year off due to the pandemic and had its best year since it started.

The four-day event consists of food, music, carnival rides, a fire truck parade, fireworks, and many other activities for the entire family to enjoy. All our entertainment on the stage is paid for through our corporate sponsor program. A business that makes a donation will have a sign on our main stage during our event.

This year will feature most of the same activities as previous years with a few changes due to last-minute planning. The association regrets that for the second year in a row The popular 5K Road Race will not be held. However, organizers are confident that it will return for future events.

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 by-law dogs and other animals are not permitted to be on the field or in the carnival at any time.

The Spring Street and Stoddard Drive walking paths to the high school and middle school property are closed from Friday morning until Saturday night after fireworks. Organizers apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. However, this has been done in the interest of safety.
