On Thursday October 23, 2014, Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation in association with the National Afterschool Alliance will be presenting “A Walk Among The Stars.” This event is in honor of Lights On Afterschool, a nationwide event celebrating afterschool programs and their important role in the lives of children, families and communities. The effort has become a hallmark of the afterschool movement, and generates media coverage across the country each year. This is our first event as a part of the National Afterschool Alliance! The Afterschool Alliance organizes Lights On Afterschool to draw attention to the many ways afterschool programs support students by offering them opportunities to learn new things and discover new skills. Kidsplosion will take part by hosting the Red Carpet Affair upon entry into the event! Kids are able to dress up like their favorite characters from TV and film, receive an escort from the limousine to the red carpet, have their picture taken by “paparazzi,” and even be interviewed by Kidsplosion Entertainment! Lights On Afterschool will take place at Alexander Park, 800 Old Snellville Highway, Lawrenceville, GA from 5:00-8:00pm. More AWESOMENESS to come…
