Every year on Mother's Day weekend, Torly Kid celebrates spring and the Tribeca community with our Annual Tween Party and Hula Hoop Contest. We welcome boys and girls ages 5 and up to get things shaking at 51 Hudson St from 11am - 3pm on Saturday, May 9. Our traditional hula hoop contest always kicks off the party at 11:30 am. Prizes are awarded for the longest hula, the best tricks, and the most hoops. Kids are separated into age groups and an adult category is encouraged!
Prior years Hula Hoop events have included collaborations with other kid friendly neighborhood businesses and this year is no different. For our 7th annual event, we have lots of fun activities lined up to get you pumped up this year. Here is a schedule of the happenings:
