September’s arrival may mean the end of summer vacation for children across Queens, but that doesn’t mean the end of summer fun.
First, the Kiwanis Club of Glendale will hold its annual Community Day from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 12, on the center green of the Shops at Atlas Park, located off the intersection of Cooper Avenue and 80th Street.
Games, inflatable rides and live entertainment are planned, and the Kiwanis Club will offer food and beverages to all guests. Additionally, the club will give away 200 backpacks filled with school supplies to local children.
Happy faces will also fill the parking lot of Maspeth Federal Savings bank’s main branch on Sunday, Sept. 20, as the bank holds its annual “Smile on Maspeth Day” celebration. The festivities will take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine, off the intersection of 69th Street and Grand Avenue; admission is free.
Children will get the chance to enjoy a day of games, arts and crafts, rides, face painting and other activities. They can also get up close with some young farm animals at a free petting zoo.
