What is Kids Out Loud?
Kids Out Loud was an event created by Let's Grow Kids in 2017 that featured a new anthem for kids written and recorded by Vermont musicians, with accompanying dance movements made by a Vermont choreographer.
The purpose of the event was to unite and inspire the growing statewide movement for affordable access to high-quality child care.
The event was held on October 1st, 2017 on the Church Street Marketplace in Burlington, VT, with 1,000 parents and kids in capes, who marched, sang, and danced for change. To see footage from the event, watch the music video to the right.
