LI Parents Day 2017: An Afternoon of Fun for Kids, Info for Parents

Fun activities for kids while Mom and Dad find out about after-school programs, doctors, and other useful resources

Kids may drag their feet when they bid farewell to summer and return to school, but here’s something to cheer them up this month. Our annual LI Parents Day will be held on Sunday, Sept. 17, and aims to make back-to-school season fun and exciting. While kids participate in classes and activities, parents will meet with local businesses, including after-school programs and doctors, to help make the transition to a new school year easier.

This year, we also are introducing a new Special Needs Alley, a section dedicated to families of children with special needs.

At LI Parents Day, kids will play in a Kids Corner and participate in activities such as a live reptile demonstration, a Zumba class, a bounce house, a robotics demonstration, and much more! While they’re busy having fun, parents can meet with more than 50 back-to-school exhibitors, including after-school programs, birthday party venues, special-needs providers, and health and wellness professionals.

Tickets are $10 per family, which covers two adults and as many as four children. Every family who attends will receive a free goodie bag filled with fun samples, courtesy of exhibitors and us, NYMetroParents! Plus, if you use the code "NYMP" when you register online, you can get a free family ticket (includes two adults and up to four children) to attend. 

LI Parents Day takes place from 11am-3pm at the Pratt Recreation Center at LIU Post, 720 Northern Blvd. in Brookville. For regular updates on exhibitors and the activity schedule, check
