Haley says of her role that It has been a great experience connecting with different vendors and community leaders. She adds that This event has been going on for 4 years. The event promotes AAA's value of safety and knowing the importance of both being a part of the community and educating them on how to be safer.
The event is definitely growing with more people and vendors added each year! We expect anywhere from 300-500 people to attend and check about 60 car seats throughout the day.
I would like to tell people that is a great event that has something for everyone in the community. Whether you need to get your car seat and car check, or just want to come walk around and enjoy the many vendors, you will be sure to have a good time. There will be quite a few giveaways and free food from Buffalo Wild Wings as well. We look forward to seeing you there!
