paaartyIt’s all I’ve been thinking about, or talking about, this past month. But in case you haven’t heard yet, Kids Fun Plaza is throwing a paaarty this weekend.

They’re not calling it a party, but there’s going to be kids in face paint, a Smile Monster, a giant white rabbit, costumed characters, a cooking demo, craft activities, a bouncy castle, and moi. They might as well call it a party.

It’s billed as the official introduction of Kids Fun Plaza, the first multi-platform magazine for Tech Valley families, and it will feature TWO major events as part of an all-day extravaganza.

Fun for the Family

Starting at 10:00 am and going on until 7:00 pm on Saturday, April 16, 2011 at Colonie Center, the KidsFun Summer Expo will introduce kids and their families to all the great options there are for camps this summer. Hands on activities will give children a taste of what to expect so they can start looking forward to summer camp. (Smart parents will note the value of this carrot in the weeks ahead.) And I’ll be there to share youth employment opportunities at a Summer Job Fair.

Fun for the Grown-Ups

From 6:00 – 7:00 pm join me at the Tech Valley Blogger Tweetup. Local social media celebrities will take part in an informational panel about blogging and audience engagement. On the panel:

Join the conversation today by following the hashtag #TechValley on Twitter. After the panel discussion, members of the audience will be invited to give their own “30-second commercials” about their own businesses and/or blogs, followed by networking and refreshments.

Win a Prize

Take home an awesome prize: (2) Ipad 2s, conference pass to Blog World Expo 2011 in NYC, a full week of summer camp for your child, and much more!

This is such a HUGE event that Kids Fun Plaza is hosting TWO contests!

Don’t forget, your chance to win a conference pass to Bloggy Boot Camp Boston ends this Friday, April 15, 2011. Find out how at: Support Blogs: Bloggy Boot Camp Giveaway.

It’s too bad Saturday is a terrible day for us to be there – heading to Vermont. My son could use the job fair, too. Couldn’t you pleeeeease put it off for us? HaHa. Enjoy for us.

Ha, ha, wish I could! Sorry we’ll miss you there!
