Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day enchants younger set

The Saturday before the US Open begins is set aside for youngsters and this year was no exception.

The day-long Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day began with hands-on tennis instructions, supplemented by face painters, stilt walkers and animal balloon makers.

In the afternoon the older kids rocked out to a paid concert inside Arthur Ashe Stadium. Performing were Hunter Hayes, Shawn Mendes, MKTO, McClain, The Vamps and Madison Beer. With them was DJ Salerno and celebrity trainer Shaun T.

The two-week US Open began Monday and continues for two weeks at Flushing Meadows Park.
