Joliet School District 86 to hold 'Worldwide Day of Play'

JOLIET - The Joliet Public Schools District 86 is inviting families to participate in free outdoor activities at the 11th annual Worldwide Day of Play.

Nickelodeon created the "Worldwide Day of Play" with its "Let's Just Play" campaign designed to encourage children and adults to turn off the television and play, especially outdoors.

This is the 14th year the network will be "going dark" throughout the day. It's partnering with national and local organizations to host thousands of these activities across the country.

The event is Saturday, Sept. 9, from 9 a.m. until noon. It will be held at Hufford Junior High School at 1125 North Larkin Ave. and Washington Junior High School at 402 Richards St.
