CORONA — First Lady Michelle Obama will be among music acts and tennis legends on hand to help kick-off the U.S. Open at Saturday's Arthur Ashe Kids' Day.

Obama will bring her “Let’s Move!” campaign, which promotes healthy eating and exercise, to the unofficial start of the tennis event.

The morning festivities include interactive games and a chance to walk around the famed stadium — and it’s all free.

The ticketed afternoon portion includes exhibition matches and skill sessions with Novak Djokovic, Serena Williams, Roger Federer and wheelchair tennis champion David Wagner in the afternoon. 

Musical stars Ariana Grande, Austin Mahone and more will also be performing live.

Tickets for the afternoon fun, which range from $10 to $20 each, are on sale through Ticketmaster.
