Scientists agree that the only reason adults have children is so they have a socially acceptable reason to visit amusement parks, eat at novelty pizza arcades, and see movies with Shreks in them. Put some fun in the oven with today's kid-friendly Groupon: for $7, you get two adult admissions (up to a $14 value) to the Dallas Kids Expo on March 26 at the Dallas Market Hall.
The annual Dallas Kids Expo provides a full day of entertainment, education, and kiddie camaraderie for humans aged 0–12. This year’s attractions include an interactive show and meet-and-greet with cheeky Thomas the Tank Engine and an appearance by the characters in the Universal Pictures soon-to-be-released animated movie Hop. Face painting, balloon animals, a petting zoo, and a space walk are also on the agenda, and pro parents can maximize their familial skillsets by attending any number of stimulating information sessions on homeschooling to healthy cooking demos by a celebrity chef.
While children dabble in supervised amateur botany or indulge in Bieberless tunes at one of the music exhibits, parents can learn about upcoming events, summer camps, and more. An ideal place to take the whole brood that isn’t another Most Dangerous Game-themed family reunion, the Dallas Kids Expo provides novel and all-ages-appropriate entertainment.
Dallas Kids Expo
Returning for their fourth year of family fun, Dallas Kids Expo’s organizers thrill children and parents with a one-day whirlwind of activities, exhibition booths, and kid-friendly demonstrations at Dallas Market Hall. Amid the spacious expo grounds, a fleet of exhibitors—from pediatric dentists to craft stores—welcome wanderers into their booths, cordially introducing their wares and services via games of charades. Appearances by Bob the Builder bring smiles to kids' faces, and information sessions for parents on child-rearing topics are hosted by local child-rearing gurus. As the day continues, kids work off excess energy at the petting zoo or by starting their own five-cent tax-preparation-service booth.
