Date has been set for 2nd annual 'Kids Be Out Day' in Apalachicola

A spring date has been set for the 2nd annual 'Kids Be Out Day' scheduled for all day Sunday, April 19, 2015, at the Franklin Square Recreation Park located on 6th Street in Apalachicola. 

Kids Be Out Day is a grassroots initiative of Je'Meane Pinkney, an Apalachicola native and Tallahassee resident that set aside an annual local day of fun and activities specifically for the kids of Apalachicola.

"Having grown up in Apalachicola... my goal is to give back by making this an annual event that provide targeted activities for the kids in Apalachicola and surrounding areas", Pinkney said.

In its second year the event is still free for the kids! Free food, games, activities, a basketball tournament with a cash prize of $300 (free to register), a talent show, and much, much more. Everything is FREE! Pinkney is also currently looking for sponsors to help make the event even more successful than last year.  

If you're interested in becoming a sponsor of this worthwhile community endeavor, please telephone Je'Meane Pinkney at (850) 228-2692 or send email to To check out photos from the 1st Annual Kids Be Out Day, click HERE
