    “We have been amazed by the turnout each year since the Expo began,” says RFM publisher Margaret Thompson. “Parents love having just one destination to get all of the information they need to plan their kids’ summer activities, and the kids absolutely love the fun and games, especially climbing the rock walls at Peak Experiences. We’re looking forward to helping our friends at Peak Experiences show off their brand-new facility that’s right in the heart of RVA!” Thompson adds.

    The Expo includes a free rock climb for the kids and interactive games and activities from the camp exhibitors.

    The event is rain-or-shine and is free for families. Lunch will be available for purchase from local food truck The Boardwalk and Papa John’s, with sweet treats for sale from the Gelati Celesti truck.
