A special event for youth and their families

Los Angeles - KTLA Kids Day L.A., a free family festival dedicated to the children of Los Angeles, was held on October 20, 2007 at the Expo Center. The event mixed fun activities for kids - including basketball, flag football, gymnastics, soccer and volleyball clinics - with practical advice and resources for parents and caregivers.

Over 100 Los Angeles City and County service providers specializing in arts, education, recreation, safety, health and social services were in attendance. Free swimming, tours of the facility grounds and live entertainment was available for all participants.

There was also a wall climbing attraction, an activity center for teenagers, a make-and-take craft area, food booths and more. The festival was produced by the Department of Recreation and Parks, which partnered with the California Science Center and the California African-Amercian Museum.
