THE 5TH ANNUAL MAMAS EXPO
Saturday June 13th and Sunday June 14th

It brings together local resources, businesses, brands, educators, caretakers, parents, grandparents, performers, artists and kids to receive an exclusive look at all of the new resources available and of course, have fun!

Activities include cool crafts, balloon twisting, face painting, play spaces, mini massages, all day music classes, snack samples and a picnic area. Parents can learn about all things parenting including great products, local services, child care, classes and camps, things to do with children, financial security options, and health and nutrition services.
