SIMI VALLEY, Calif. - April 15, 2014 - PRLog -- Families will be able to participate in a variety of free outdoor activities, games and crafts during the Simi Valley Family YMCA "Healthy Kids Day," Saturday, May 10 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The event is held each year in conjunction with the Simi Valley Street Fair (Cochran Street between Galena and Sequoia).

         This year, the YMCA is sponsoring the Street Fair’s kids’ activity area taking place on the YMCA grounds (3200 Cochran Street). Besides free games and crafts, it will include a community demonstration stage showcasing local talent. The Y will be holding its pinewood derby races during the event as well offering parents information on how to keep their kids active during the upcoming summer months.

         “Summer is the time for kids to be outside,” says Stacey Huff, Simi Y senior program director. “There are lots of healthy ways to keep kids stimulated and active.”

         The Simi Y is one of 1,500 YMCA hosting Healthy Kids Day in spring. Research shows that kids are prone to gain more weight and fall behind in studies during summer. With nearly one in three U.S. children overweight or obese, the national YMCA instituted Healthy Kids Day to encourage kids and parents to commit to keeping their bodies and minds active during the summer.

         For more information about Healthy Kids Day, call the Y at 805-583-5338.
