Thank you to Sandbox Kids & Family fun band, the face painters and the balloon artists. ZUMBA was a huge hit on the ATC lawn, take a look at the pictures - people were dancing and sweating thanks to our field game sponsors, The YMCA. Little Pros, sponsor of 'Touch Interactive' had numerous fun-filled activities along with Noah's Landing and their exotic petting zoo in Bay 7.
Bright Horizons' Learn and Play Space located at the Stack on the ATC campus, was packed with fun things to do. Activities included more ZUMBA, yoga, Corn Hole, movement matters, and bag decorating. There was also a colorful cozy zone for infants and toddlers.
