HOLT, Fla., Dec. 3, 2019—It’s Kids Day again in Holt.
The Holt Volunteer Fire District is hosting its annual Kids Day Dec. 7 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
This year marks a change of venue for the annual event. It will be held at Holt’s new park located on U.S. 90 just east of town, an inaugural event of the new facilities.
Kids Day activities include bounce houses, arts and crafts, and face painting.
Santa Claus will be on hand to meet the children and every child will leave with an age-appropriate toy.
There will also be hot chocolate and popcorn, and Susan’s Restaurant will provide hot dogs for the event.
The Masons will also be on hand to conduct its Child ID program.
Begun in 1997 by the Grand Lodge of Florida based in Jacksonville, the Florida Masonic Child ID Program focuses on prevention by providing child identification kits to parents or guardians to have on hand should their child go missing.
Information collected includes the name and nickname of the child, his parents or guardians, a high-quality photo; any distinguishing marks such as scars or birthmarks; physical description; medical information such as allergies; contact information and fingerprints.
Information is saved in an Adobe .pdf format on a DVD and given to participating parents. Once the DVD is turned over, the information is erased from the computers.
Crestview Christmas parade
Following the event, crews from Holt Fire will prep the fire truck for the annual Crestview Christmas parade.
The parade begins at 5:30 p.m. on Main Street.
