Fight for your right to play

Nickelodeon’s “Worldwide Day of Play” is coming to Chicago on October 2nd. What is this worldwide day of play?

Nickelodeon’s Worldwide Day of Play is the network’s campaign to get kids more physically active and to encourage positive, healthy and playful lifestyles across the globe. In this, its inaugural year, Nickelodeon’s Worldwide Day of Play will feature simultaneous live global events — all with televised elements — that enlist help and participation from kids and families in: Chicago; four other U.S. cities (Los Angeles, Tampa, St. Louis and Phoenix); and countries and international territories including India, the Philippines, Singapore, Australia and Malaysia.

This is immediately followed by the most hilarious quote ever:

“Kids have a right to play every day, but they aren’t always able to”

That’s right. Damn the Man. We have to fight for our right to play. We earned it. It is a guaranteed basic right. Right up there with life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
On tap for the event are musical performances, football, and of course, a good old-fashioned sliming.
The best part is that Nickelodeon will go off the air from 11am – 2pm on the 2nd in order to encourage kids to go outside and play. That’s ripping the system.
