Looking for some fun activity in Downtown Wilmington to keep your kids busy this weekend? Read on! This Saturday only, the Kidz Expo, hosted by Star News Media, is taking place at the Wilmington Convention Center from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. featuring Disney’s Descendants 2 star, China Anne McClain.
This fun-filled, affordable family event is a great way to entertain the kids for hours. They can enjoy face painting and watch a balloon artist create their favorite animal or flower to take away. Children will burn off excess energy on inflatable bounce houses and will make lasting memories having pictures taken with their favorite costumed characters. The special guest, China Anne McClain, will appear for fan photos between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
While enjoying the activities, you can browse over 50 vendor booths and learn about ways to raise happy, healthy kids. Many vendors will have contests, food and drink samples and free goodies for you to take away. Other food and drinks will be available on site. Vendors include Noonie Doodle Sweets + Treats, Marcus Anthony Photography, Opera House Theatre Company and Wilmington Railroad Museum.
