At Belle Brigade, children can celebrate any occasion with parties that thrill with whimsical dance routines, arcade games, and age-appropriate makeovers. Karalee Shannon and her staff of beauticians and party hosts encourage children to express themselves through different party package itineraries. During spa parties, girls get dolled up with manicures and up-do hairstyles before they soak up useful fashion tips. With game packages, boys and girls sip sodas and play arcade games to rack up tickets, which are redeemable for coveted prizes or straight-A report cards.
Midwest Kids Fest helps families organize informative, entertainment-packed weekend getaways without having to leave their home state. Attracting an ever-growing audience since it first hit the road in 2006, the traveling production plans to expand to more cities in the near future, as if re-creating Lewis and Clark’s epic search for a vending machine that’d accept a Sacagawea dollar. At each stop, organizers stage days of wholesome entertainment, secretly embedding full servings of education into interactive workshops, shopping from local vendors, petting-zoo, face-painting, contests, charity raffles, and live performances from magicians and singers. Onsite vendors also accompany each festival, allowing older brothers to trade their siblings for something their parents would actually enjoy.
Though most pitchers clear their mounds at the slight rumor of a thunderstorm, the ones inside Kansas City Sports Club always stay dry and padded with footprints. In addition to pitching tunnels, hitting tunnels, and a turf infield that stays safe from outdoor weather conditions, the facility features a full fitness center that protects guests from the hazards of working out on treadmills in the wilderness. The fitness center features free weights and cardio machines with flat-screen televisions and free WiFi to keep guests informed and entertained during workouts.
Revolution Gym helps guests shape up with fitness classes that team calorie-burning cardio with muscle-toning weight training.

Experienced fighters lead kickboxing sessions for students of all levels, teaching proper jab form, while hardcore classes efface musculoskeletal torpors by employing weights and medicine balls to make muscles burn with satisfaction, like an insult uttered from the lips of a sarcastic fire swallower. Clients can also find their inner hardbodies during boot camp sessions. Group workouts take place throughout the day, including early mornings and lunch hours, and fitness students can discover temporal directions via the gym’s summer and fall-spring schedules.
