For families with young children, trips to Millcreek Mall are about to get a lot more fun. Last year, government orders shut down many play areas like the Widget Kidz Zone in the mall’s Center Court. That’s all behind us. Prepare to celebrate the Grand Re-Opening of the Widget Kidz Zone on Saturday, August 7. It starts with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11 AM. After that, the kids will get to meet one of their cartoon favorites, Peppa Pig. She’ll be greeting her fans from 11:30 AM to 3 PM. At noon, Spider Man will swing in along with Captain America. They’ll be on hand until 4 PM. Throughout the day, kids will enjoy balloon art with Silly the Clown and glitter tattoos from Face Painting by Connie. It’s all FREE.
The Kidz Zone is a specially designed soft-play area for children under 42 inches tall. It is sponsored by Widget Financial.
