There will also be free rides for the kids as well as free popcorn and cotton candy. The Children's Stage will make sure the party never stops with over 400 performers entertaining throughout the day.
"We all look forward to this special day every year," said Pembroke Pines Mayor Frank C. Ortis. "It's a chance for everyone in the community to get together and just have fun."
In the Great Hall, there will be a Kids Konnection Business Expo, featuring kid-friendly businesses that will keep children and parents informed of what there is to do in Pembroke Pines and neighboring areas. Vendors will have giveaways, raffles and goody bags for those who visit their booth.
