State Senator Daylin Leach (D-Montgomery/Delaware) last week hosted his 11th annual Kids’ Fair at the Elmwood Park Zoo in Norristown.
The goal of the event was to provide information and resources to children and their families while giving them an enjoyable experience at the one-of-a-kind Elmwood Park Zoo.
This year’s event, which drew over 1500 constituents despite the blistering heat, showcased information from more than 60 state and local agencies. Families in attendance enjoyed free access to the zoo and free entertainment, along with complimentary food and drinks from local businesses.
“Local families look forward to this event every year,” Leach said. “I’m glad to be able to continue to provide an opportunity for members of the community to connect with local service organizations in a space that is fun and educational for kids.” Leach continued, “I would be remiss if I didn’t also thank the Elmwood Park Zoo for continuing to open up their zoo for this event, and the Suburban Community Hospital for their contributions to making this event a success every year.”
Sponsors of the event included Elmwood Park Zoo, Suburban Community Hospital, Comcast Cable, PECO, Main Line Health, Nemours Children’s Health System, Independence Blue Cross, McCaffrey’s Food Market, GSI Concrete, Kaiserman JCC, Soccer Shots, Spanish Exploradores and The Handwork Studio.
