Beat summer boredom with a family trip to the Central Florida Kids & Family Expo. Held at the spacious Orange County Convention Center, the expo takes place August 18 – 19 and connects families in Central Florida with entertainment for all ages. With over 150 pre-natal, baby, toddler, kid, teen and family exhibitors, the Central Florida Kids & Family expo promises a weekend of air-conditioned multi-generational fun. Here’s just a taste of what to expect.
Even though there are so many different exhibitors, they all have one thing in common – hands-on fun! Participate in a magic show, check out the inside of a SWAT vehicle, roll around in a Knockerball, and much more. Some vendors offer extra fun such as train rides, face painting, and pony rides for an additional charge, so keep some cash in your pocket in case you want to try these.
Unique Photo Opportunities
Fairy tale and superhero characters have stepped out of their storybook worlds to hang out in Central Florida for the expo. Your kids will love meeting their favorite characters and posing for selfies with them. You’ll also get the chance to meet and pose with a variety of farm animals and reptiles.
At the Central Florida Kids & Family Expo, you’ll be treated to family-friendly performances, which are included in the price of your ticket. In past expos, audiences have been dazzled by acrobatic aerial artists and talented Irish dancers.
When you purchase a ticket, you’re automatically registered for giveaways. Prizes include family tickets to Kennedy Space Center, Busch Gardens, Disney on Ice, the Crayola Experience, and many more. You’ll also enjoy plenty of free samples at the expo (and yes, there will be food samples).
The Central Florida Kids & Family Expo was created by moms who are committed to keeping costs low and accessible to all families. Tickets at the door are $10 each but you can save by purchasing them in advance online for just $5. Youngsters under 2 receive free entry.
