Brownstown Township hosts plenty of summer activities for downriver residents young and old, but the Kids’ Day event is one of the most popular of all.
As for Sue Trussell, director of the Downtown Development Authority, it tops her list.
Kids Day is scheduled to take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Aug. 24 at the Event Center, 23345 King Road.
“This is my favorite event of the summer,” Trussell said. “It’s great to see all the kids enjoying free family fun on a summer day in Brownstown. They can come for a few minutes and enjoy the fun or stay all day. There’s plenty to keep kids busy.”
