Day of Play Postponed

Meridian, Miss. Nickelodeon's Day of Play was set to be held Saturday, Sept. 21 at Highland Park.

But expected rain has caused officials with Meridian Parks and Recreation to postpone the event.

"I want the kids to come out and the parents come out with their children," said assistant parks director, Kelvin McGruder. "We'll have face painting; we're giving away two bikes, a girl's bike and a boy's bicycle. We're going to have cotton candy, and were going to have snow balls. A real fun day for children and their parents to come out to the park. It's a meaningful day of play for children and their parents."

Everyone is encouraged to attend the special day Oct. 5, starting at 10 a.m., to enjoy the free fun and games.
