The Northside YMCA, 1350 W. North Ave., hosts Family Fun Fridays starting Feb. 13 and 27 for kids, adults and families. From 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., there'll be activities such as wellness tours, an indoor waterslide, movies, board and card games, sports, arts and crafts, and raffle drawings for free memberships.

In addition, a Black History Performance by Milwaukee College Prep Scholars will be featured and Children's Hospital of Wisconsin will offer free flu and measles shots. Children’s Community Health Plan also will be present to share health insurance sign-up information.

As a champion for healthy living, the vision of the Milwaukee Y is a stronger, healthier Milwaukee where families of all incomes and backgrounds truly thrive. The Y strives to empower all generations of family members to live healthy, full, thriving lives by:

  • Offering solutions that reduce health issues that plague our community (such as chronic diseases and preventable injuries)
  • Providing safe places seven days a week where kids can have fun, families can gather and seniors can build meaningful connections
  • Serving as access points for vital community needs (like preventative health care and reliable, safe, before and after school care)
