Every year, the Sunset Plaza hosts the Children’s Day Festival on the second Sunday in February, and that’s this Sunday, February 9! It’s from 1:00-4:00 in the afternoon. Now a tradition for more than 20 years, Read Aloud Norfolk continues to provide books to kids “For the Love of Reading,” appropriate because of it’s connection to Valentine’s Day.

Various organizations in Northeast Nebraska set up booths and activities for the kids where they can earn tickets, and then they use the tickets to buy books. In previous years, about 1,500 books have been given out!

Planning starts all the way back in September, so you know it’s a big event. The organizations aren’t charged, but they’re welcome to sponsor or donate books.
