Event Description

The 13th annual Kid’s Day of Lexington will take place Saturday, April 27, 2013, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Main Street in Lexington. Kid’s Day, hosted by Palmetto Chiropractic Center, is free and open to the public and is intended to educate families on health, safety and environmental issues. Free food and drink are available. Last year over 16,000 people attended Kid’s Day of Lexington.

"We recognized that the community needed a family event and we wanted to make it a learning day mixed with fun,” said Dr. Jason Yoder, of Palmetto Chiropractic Center. “Kid's Day has grown each year into a wonderful event for families to spend time together while learning and playing without emptying their wallets."

“We’ve been honored to host Kid’s Day of Lexington for so many years,” said Dr. Jud Heldreth, of Palmetto Chiropractic Center. “We always have an amazing turnout and this year, we’re excited to offer more giveaways, food, entertainment, and of course safety info for families, than ever before. It’s always a fun spring day in Lexington, and though we’re usually at Virginia Hylton Park, we’re excited to host Kid’s Day on Main Street in 2013.”
