Let's face it, there are a lot of kids out there in Patch land and there are a lot of birthdays that need to be celebrated.
There are so many wonderful places to celebrate with kids — pizza parlors, bowling alleys, karate and dance studios, craft stores, gymansiums, and dozens of other choices. Parents out there, you've done many of them and with mixed results.
But where was the most fun? Where did your kid have a good time? What is the place you'd recommend to other parents? We want to know.
This week's "Reader's Choice" poll asks the question: Where is the best place locally to have a great kid's birthday party?
You have a week to vote and the results will be tallied at 9 a.m. Friday. The winning business gets its own story, and all of the winners around Essex County will be highighted on our front page on Saturday.
Feel free to vote, comment and make suggestions. If we've forgotten a place, be sure and let us know. We can't wait to hear where you think is the best place to blow out the candles.
