People can no longer say “It’s nothing to do in Birmingham!” Nearly every weekend it seems as if there are family friendly events happening throughout the city. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to stop by Birmingham’s #RailroadPark to catch Birmingham’s 5th District Annual #FunDay. It was my first time attending the event, but I must say it was tons of FUN!
The annual event is sponsored by Birmingham City Councilman Johnathan Austin and Magic City Smooth Jazz. The Fun Day was hosted by Birmingham’s favorite radio personality, Rickey Smiley of the Rickey Smiley Morning Show. Featuring interactive activities for kids such as pumpkin decorations, carnival ride, and face painting, we also saw the debut of the Stephonia McLinn’s “Say Cheese” photo booth.
While the kids were having fun throughout the park, adults were able to sit in their lawn chairs and listen to the smooth sounds of Jazmin Ghent. Ghent’s cover of “No Diggity” by #BlackStreet was definitely a crowd favorite.
Make sure you continue to read The Birmingham Times to find out what’s happening throughout the Magic City.
