Kids Day

July 20, 2021

Kid’s Day is a community-wide event that is completely free to the children of Crawford County and hosted by area businesses and organizations! This year to help with social distancing, we will be setting booths up for a TRICK OR TREAT style event. We encourage businesses and organizations to have tricks (games and activities) and treats at their booths. Due to COVID guidelines some of our food and activities will look different but we will be doing our best to make sure this is still a great event for the kids of Crawford County! This event is great for high school age kids who are looking to collect Community Services hours.

Kid’s Day is in need of the following Volunteers:
Activities
Games
Concessions
Setup
Clean up
Registration
and more.

Food Court

July 23 & 24, 2021

Taking place on Michigan Ave. The food court will be the home to some Northern Michigan Food Trucks Friday and Saturday from 11am-8pm.  With this being a two day event we do need our volunteers there in the morning to open the gates for the trucks that do not park overnight.  This is a a pretty simple volunteer job, just check in the vendors show them to their spaces, make sure they know where to find what they need (trash, parking, porta johns) and make sure the vendors tape down any electrical cords they might have. 

We need Volunteers to help with the following:
Check In Vendors 
Man Barricade to only let Vendors in and out
