This Saturday, the Children’s Trust will host its annual Family Expo -- a fun-filled family-centric community event created to connect parents to a wide range of programs and services for their children.
The fun will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Miami-Dade County Fair & Expo Center. Admission, parking, and all activities and entertainment are are free to participants.
Hundreds of direct service organizations will be on hand to introduce parents to:
- After-school programs that keep their children safe, engaged and learning after the last bell rings
- Enrichment programs that immerse them in the arts, robotics, filmmaking and coding
- Sports programs that encourage them to stay focused and fit.
- Health and wellness resources and academic supports will also be represented
Returning favorites include a pop-up planetarium, bounce houses and a rock climbing wall, arts and crafts activities, kid-friendly Zumba classes, fencing and robotics demonstrations, storybook character meet-and-greets, and face painters and balloon artists. Big-ticket raffles will be held throughout the day; kids who get there when the doors open will receive a free backpack from The Children’s Trust. Sign language interpreters will be on-site.
Food and beverages will be available for sale at the event.
