Bring your children or grandchildren to this free event from 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. that day and meet a filmmaker, a ballet dancer, a zoologist, a musician, an engineer, a journalist, a lemonade entrepreneur (really!) and other professionals who are eager to visit with you!

There’ll be snacks provided by KIND Bars, and fun activities that will keep kids engaged and learning while they’re at the event. 

Join us and learn about all the possibilities there are out there When I Grow Up!
