“Promoting children’s health and safety is extremely important, and this year’s expo offers children and families a great opportunity to learn about issues such as cyber bullying, nutrition, bicycle safety, college savings programs and more,” said Wehrli. “This expo is always very well-attended, and families come back year after year not just for the information, but also for the fun, hands-on activities for children.”

Admission is free. There will also be free giveaways at the event. To view a full list of participants, click here.
