Tennis and music stars collided on Saturday to bring a day filled with performances and fun activities at the 19th annual Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day.

While signaling the start of the two-week US Open in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, the event featured performances from country superstar Hunter Hayes, duo MKTO, girl group McClain, British pop rock band The Vamps, teen sensation Madison Beer and DJ Salerno among others, as well as appearances from pro players Novak Djokovic and Sloane Stephens.

Besides the performances, there were a variety of tennis programs for kids to learn more about the game, such as courts with professional teachers, technology to test the speed of their serves and obstacle courses to challenge their agility and balance. There was also face painting, juggling performances and various other acts for children to enjoy.
