Families, there’s a FREE event you won’t want to miss this Saturday, September 30th! It’s called KIDSPO: A Twin Cities Kids Experience, and it’s at the Eagan Community Center from 10-3.
Coordinated by SunThisWeek and the Dakota County Tribune, who have headed 3 KIDSPO events in the past few years, along with Twin Cities Kids Club, Twin Cities Road Crew, Tumblewalla and myself, this event brings together families, businesses and organizations to connect, have fun, entertain, and educate – all in one place.
There are so many reasons to bring the family to this event but I put together my top 10!
- It’s FREE!
- The first 100 families to enter will get a FREE Crayola Experience ticket ($19.99 value).|
