Kids invited to take part in Wellesley Turkey Bowl flag football game

Before Wellesley and Needham high school athletes square off in their annual football game on Thanksgiving Day, younger kids in Wellesley will have a chance to strut their stuff in a Turkey Bowl flag football game.

This Kids’ Time event will take place at Bates Elementary School/Kelly Field on Wednesday afternoon for children in grades K-5. The cost is $25, with a portion going to the Wellesley High School Gridiron Club.  Players are encouraged to wear red and black, and the games will be quarterbacked by a Wellesley High football team player.

Next up for Kids’ Time is winter basketball, and registration has begun.
