Children's Expo

Thanks for expressing interest in the Children’s Expo taking place on Sunday, April 12.

Celebrate 30 years at Children's Expo. The Children's Expo features free health screenings for children ages 10 yrs. and under. Health screenings ensure that children begin school with no barriers to learning, and that children already in school have the best chance to be successful students. Screenings are offered by qualified professionals in several different health-related areas. Explore the expo hall with its interactive booths, live entertainment, and exhibitors with products and services just for children and families.

Calling all volunteers who are interested in child development. Transform a school into a wild safari, help professionals perform children’s health screenings, assist with registration, provide vendor hospitality and much more!
