Saluda Streets Alive! held June 8 to promote playing

“Thanks to Monica, Shannon, Erny and Brian for their hard work at the play day,” Basiden said. “This is part of a step that we can send Kaboom the beach ball that the kids signed, we can send them a T-shirt, we can send pictures and we just might be able to get a grant to enhance our city.”

Saluda was named to the Playful City USA list for the second time this year. The list, compiled by KaBOOM!, acknowledged Saluda as one of 217 cities focused on making play more accessible for kids and families.

KaBOOM! will receive a beach ball petition for play signed by everyone who attended to be displayed at their headquarters as well as a t-shirt from our event that features artwork done by the Saluda School graduating fifth grade class of 2013.
