North Attleboro Firefighter’s Kids Day returns for its 43rd annual fundraising carnival at the North Attleborough Middle School, 520 Landry Ave., from July 20-23.

The North Attleboro Firefighters Kids Association is a nonprofit organization that started in 1980. Its 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 ever.

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 entertainment on the stage is paid for through a corporate sponsor program. A business that makes a donation will have a sign on the main stage.

This year will feature most of the same activities as previous years.

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

Notice: 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 the fireworks show. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause; however, this has been done in the interest of safety.
