All Aboard The Little Lake County Birthday Express presented by Bright Horizons

Our final playdate is this morning, Friday, April 8th at Blue Sky Yoga! Join us! Little Lake county Birthday Express

Little Lake County turns six years old in 2016–We’re big kids now!

In that time, we’ve learned a thing or two about throwing a birthday party…and we know it’s just no fun to celebrate alone.  So we’re inviting you to climb aboard The Little Lake County Birthday Express!  We’ll be making stops at five (5) locations in and around Lake County with our friends from Bright Horizons to celebrate with FREE birthday party playdates for our readers.

Nothing cures the winter blues like a good old- fashioned party!  To provide fuel for little engines we’ll provide samples of Qwackers: Gluten Free Crackers at each and every one of our playdates.  Qwackers are processed in a dedicated gluten-free and peanut-free facility, so they’re safe for kids with peanut allergies, gluten sensitivity or celiac disease.  Your little ducks will be sure to be quacking for more!

Admission is FREE for those who register for tickets, but entrance is limited.  Mark your calendars for these upcoming playdates and be on the lookout for when we release tickets for each event – SPACE IS LIMITED! You must have a ticket to enter.
