BERLIN, N.J., July 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Kids up and down the East Coast will converge on A.C. Moore Arts & Crafts (Nasdaq: ACMR) stores for the company's free Silly Bandz trading event on Thursday, July 15, 2010 from 3 p.m.5 p.m., at all 135 A.C. Moore stores.

Kids attending the event will receive two free Silly Bandz and have the opportunity to trade items from their own collection with other children, make new friends and learn about Silly Bandz storage options and more.

"We're aiming to hold the world's largest Silly Bandz trading event," said Robin Beam, director of education for A.C. Moore. Beam said the rubbery bands continue to be hot as the company had hundreds of kids in stores during a recent Silly Bandz project late last month.

A.C. Moore's popular summer program offers free crafts every Wednesday from 3 p.m. - 5 p.m. through August 25, for children ages four and up, at all 135 stores, no reservations necessary. Kids can make their own cool, age-appropriate craft and take it home. And, it's all free, while supplies last.
