Loveland youngsters will be able to enjoy a day of fun and activities dedicated entirely to them.
Last year, more than 2,000 children and their parents enjoyed the fun at the Rialto Theater, Fire Station #1, Library, Loveland Museum/Gallery and Chilson Recreation Center. Activities planned for this year include:

The City of Loveland, with the help of the Thompson School District, has been celebrating Colorado Children’s Day since 2002. Children’s Day is the result of the long-time dream of Loveland resident Annie Hall. In March 2001 Colorado Senator Stan Matsunaka sponsored Senate Joint Resolution 01-015 which created a COLORADO CHILDREN’S DAY to be celebrated each year on the first Wednesday in March. The resolution was unanimously passed by the Colorado legislature. Through Ms. Hall’s efforts, the day is now celebrated in other cities in Colorado. Ms. Hall is working to make Children’s Day a nationally recognized holiday. For more information on the 2011 event, please call 970-962-2410 or visit cityofloveland.org.
