A charity fun day will be held in memory of Lucas Dobson as his parents continue their quest to raise water safety awareness.
The six-year-old from Deal died after falling into the River Stour in Sandwich in August.
Since then his parents Nathan Dobson and Kirsty Furze have launched the The Lucas River Safety Campaign to hand out lifejackets in schools.
To raise funds towards the project a family event will be held at Deal Welfare Club in Cowdray Square on Sunday, October 27.
Starting at 11am, it will feature face painting, a cake stall, lucky dip, raffles, tombola, sumo suits and a disco.
Brave Kim Marsh will also have her head shaved while her son Jay Wallace has agreed to a full body wax, in exchange for sponsors.
Helper Tracy Tombs said: "This is such a worthy cause.
"Local businesses have been fantastic and have donated some amazing prizes.
"We've got vouchers from salons, beauty therapists, piercing shops, you name it, we've got it.
"The generosity of the town has been tremendous as well as connecting towns."
