2022 City Kids Family Fair Wrap-Up

By Jessica Boehme-Flores, Senior Manager, Family & Caregiver Education

What a beautiful and FUN day it was for our annual City Kids Family Fair held on Saturday, October 22, 2022 in the Mission.

Hundreds of children and their families enjoyed seeing the Lion Dance, doing yoga, playing games, making bubbles and crafts and hugging Elmo!

See all the fun event photos in our Facebook album.

Parents received free bags of fresh produce, a box of diapers and valuable resources from a full range community organizations. The San Francisco Fire Department made an appearance with their fire truck, and we even had COVID vaccinations and boosters available on site!
