Each year thousands of families from all over Northeast Ohio visit Great Lakes Mall in late March for the annual KidShow. This year will be no different as the KidShow returns March 23rd from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and March 24th from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Families come for the exhibitors and stay for the fun!
What will you see? Some of the best products and services for kids and families at this “one-stop information shop.” There will be schools and daycares, sports and entertainment, health and fitness, home and financial, camps and vacations and everything in between at the nearly 85 exhibiting booths. Along with sharing information, many of the exhibitors will also be sharing interactive activities with attending families. A new featured area is for Special Needs, providing parents and caregivers resources and information. A pet area is new as well, showcasing pet services and products.
What can you do? Jam-packed with activities and fun, there is something for everyone! Be creative at the Michaels’ booth in front of Build-A-Bear with a craft, participate in vendor offered booth activities, play games and win prizes, shake hands with costume characters, enjoy hours of continuous stage entertainment, check out comedy magic and juggling with Billy Matsumoto (featured on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Shark Tank), dance with the Rockin Robots and even put yourself in a bubble with Dr. U.R. Awesome. Be on hand on Sunday at 4:00 p.m. when Dr. U.R. Awesome will attempt to set a Guinness World Record for the biggest bubble blown by hand and the tallest bubble. Join us at the top of the Food Court and be part of history!
There are so many ways to win! Did someone say two flight vouchers? Yes, we did! The first 250 families daily to register at the Registration Center at the top of the Food Court will get a free KidShow goody bag. One lucky bag will hold a red envelope with (2) $250 flight vouchers for Frontier Airlines! Play trivia from the stage and take home movie tickets, baseball tickets, prizes and toys. Be around the stage when there is a Snack Attack and enjoy the snack of the hour.
“The opportunity we set out to create with the KidShow is one for parents to spend time with their kids at a free event filled with hours of activities and fun,” states Patty Perry, ProMark Enterprises, Inc. President and KidShow Producer. “The outcome we seek is children inspired by others through entertainment and interactive participation and parents gaining a wealth of new knowledge and resources to make good family choices.” As you can imagine, the coordination of the KidShow is a large undertaking but for the staff at ProMark, this yearly event is a true labor of love.
