AMIP Snooks Adams Kid’s Day: Race to summer

Kids take off in the sack race at the 59th annual Snooks Adams Kids Day, hosted by the fun-loving Anna Maria Island Privateers May 17 at Anna Maria’s Bayfront Park. The event included free sodas, hot dogs and pizza for kids and plenty of games, beads and pirate tales. The annual event began in 1954, when the late Holmes Beach Police Chief Snooks Adams carried kids in his Jeep to Coquina Beach to celebrate the end of the school year. The Privateers took up sponsorship in the 1980s, while Adams continued to raise funds and make appearances at the event. It grew to accommodate hundreds of kids seeking summer fun.
