With over 40 vendors registered, there’s something for everyone. Each booth will offer a free activity for children.

“You almost need to bring a little red wagon because there are so many giveaways,” Boll said.

There will also be live music and food trucks at the event.

“It’s a great family, child-oriented event that gets children out and they experience a variety of activities to help develop skills, from social skills to fine and gross motor skills,” Boll said.
