Keyshia Cole Day takes place at East Oakland Sports Center on September 30.

Oakland native Keyshia Cole, a multi-platinum selling R&B star now living in Cleveland, returns to her home town on September 30 to celebrate the fifth annual Keyshia Cole Day at the East Oakland Sports Center.

It's a free yearly celebration of giving back to the community that Cole began in 2008, when the City of Oakland proclaimed August 8 to be Keyshia Cole Day in recognition of her achievements in music. This year's event, which takes place from 2-6 p.m. features live performances (likely to include a song or two from Cole herself), food, and kid-friendly activities such as swimming, face painting and a petting zoo. Cole herself is parent to son Daniel, 2, with husband Daniel Gibson, a basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Cole recently released her fifth album, Woman to Woman. A new reality show featuring herself and Gibson called Keyshia & Daniel: Family First, premieres on October 9 on BET.
