Dynamic Kids Expo
Like a firm refusal to stop wearing footie pajamas, the Dynamic Kids Expo is a statement in support of childhood. There, under the roof of the Gwinnett Convention Center, youngsters squeal with glee while hopping across the moon bounce, having their face painted with butterflies, and laughing at the exaggerated antics of clowns. A fun zone stocked video games and Spa-Kidz pampering services can ease away the stresses of recess while parents investigate the goods and services of exhibitors. These vendors sling wares for any age group and take all shapes, from a mural artist to highchair-organizer manufacturers to speech therapists. Special guests making appearances include Esther Caspino, a news anchor and celebrity chef, Atlanta Falcon's mascot Freddie Falcon, and a youth dance ensemble that’s been featured on the Disney Channel and Nickelodeon. Proceeds from the event benefit Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
