The third annual Camellia City Kids Fun Fest, one of the largest children's festivals on the northshore, will take place in Slidell's Heritage Park. Admission is $5 per person and all activities are included. Proceeds benefit Riley's Bikes, a local charity that provides customized bikes for children with special needs.
"Ray really enjoyed kids. He and his Leadership Northshore team wanted to do a children's festival that was affordable, that way large families like ours could attend," said Ray's wife, Connie Dupuy. "Ray loved this project and I enjoyed volunteering each year. We loved seeing the families in Heritage Park and all the kids having fun. We were all about the kids."
