Annual Children's Day Event (Dia del Nino)
Apr 27, 2024

Catholic Charities of Southeast Michigan's  La Casa Amiga Community Programs has celebrated this annual tradition in Pontiac for years.

"Día del Niño" (Children's Day) is a festive holiday celebrated annually in various Latin American countries and other parts of the world to honor and appreciate children. The holiday recognizes children’s importance in society and promotes their well-being. The celebration date varies by country, but it commonly involves activities like festivals, games, and special events at schools, parks, and community centers, often featuring gifts, entertainment, and educational opportunities tailored for children.

In Mexico, for example, Día del Niño is celebrated on April 30th and includes parties, music, and treats specifically for kids. Schools often organize events, and parents give gifts to their children. Similarly, in other countries, the day is marked with enthusiasm and various activities to make children feel unique and cherished.
