Saturday June 14th was a beautiful day in Kings Park and a perfect day for the annual Kings Park Day sponsored by the Kings Park Chamber of Commerce. Located on main street by the Kings Park Fire Department, clock tower, and Kings Park Library, visitors of the Kings Park Day got to enjoy great food, vendors, and activities for the kids.

Local businesses came out to offer samples of their great food for visitors. Additionally, crafts and food vendors were selling homemade and home cooked food. At the fire department, kids were running through the fire hose and learning about fire safety. In the Key Food parking lot, Key Food outdid themselves this year with plenty of delicious giveaways from hot dogs, chips, and soda. 

Among many of the booths was Kings Parks Library where they were promoting their summer reading program. By the booth, the Kings Park High School Jazz Band played live for visitors. Additionally, the Boy Scouts were back again this year with their obstacle course. 

LongIsland.com was in the middle of main street meeting many great Long Islanders and handing out our great new bumper stickers and giving away great prizes.
