The Out & About 2019 Expo invites families to find out more about what’s happening locally, and give kids a chance to have some Easter fun.
The event, presented by The Laker/Lutz News, is set for April 20 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Plantation Palms Golf Club, 23253 Plantation Palms Blvd., in Land O’ Lakes.
“The No. 1 reason why people read The Laker/Lutz News is because they’re looking for things to do locally,” said Diane Kortus, the newspaper’s publisher.
The expo will bring that concept to life — with people representing dozens of companies and organizations coming together to give visitors a chance to learn about local options for children and adults, alike.
Indoor booths will have representatives providing information about summer camp programs, museums, day trips, restaurants, specialty shops and area businesses.
Those visiting also will have a chance to take part in activities, and take home some swag.
Outdoors, kids will have a chance to hunt for Easter eggs at 10 a.m.
Once they find some eggs, kids will be able to exchange their eggs for “goodie bags” loaded with prizes.
But, kids won’t be the only ones having fun searching for eggs. There will be an egg hunt for adults, too, who will also have a chance to win prizes.
Other activities will include bowling and hockey games, as well.
The Easter Bunny is also expected to hop in, to pose for photos with guests throughout the event.
All of those activities will probably make people hungry, so guests will be able to partake of appetizers and other refreshments, and adult beverages will be available from Tropical Wine Shop.
The event is free and so is parking – yet limited.
Guests are encouraged to park at the Harvester United Methodist Church at 2432 Collier Parkway in Land O’ Lakes. From there, shuttles will run throughout the event, escorting guests to and from the golf club premises.
