Grand Rapids, Michigan, December 10, 2019 – The zip line will once again fly through the DeVos Place, along with a larger annual Kids & Family Expo. This community event will be held on Saturday, January 25 and will focus on Interactive Activities, Educational Fun, and Family Entertainment all while encouraging families to be active and engage in family bonding time.
Cabin fever will hit in January, and this expo will encourage families to play, celebrate, be active, explore, build, learn, and discover. Families Matter and this expo will encourage family bonding time and fun for the whole family!
This event partners with the Mental Health Foundation – be nice. program, which is a mental health education, bully and suicide prevention initiative that creates a positive cultural change through simple daily actions. “Local schools who participate in the postcard distribution have an opportunity to raise funds for the be nice. initiative. It is a way for us to give back and support a great program all while encouraging strong family fun,” says Anicia Capozzoli, Show Manager at Kohler Expos, Inc., the company that produces the event.
