Kid A' RifficThe City’s Office of Special Events is hosting a weekly event for families and youngsters called Kid A’ Riffic Fun on the Square, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesdays, July 9, 16, 23 and 30, on Market Square.

“Our goal is to engage families in free, fun-packed summer activities,” says Elaine Frank of the City’s Special Events team. “Market Square hosts numerous events throughout the year, and we wanted to bring together partners to provide a special opportunity for families and their kids, who are looking for new diversions during summer vacation.”

The groups leading the activities each week include: The Knoxville Arts and Fine Crafts Center, The Muse Knoxville, YMCA, Home Depot, Knoxville Fire Department, KAT (Knoxville Area Transit) and the Knoxville Ice Bears.

Kid A’ Riffic guests can park at the Knoxville Civic Coliseum for $5 and ride the free Blue Line Trolley to Market Street. Additional parking is available in the Market Square, Locust Street, Walnut Street and State Street garages for $1/hour. Free parking is available at the Blackstock Parking lot and the Jackson Avenue parking lot under James White Parkway.
