We love our PAMP parents and our favorite event to celebrate all of the families who make up PAMP is Family Day. Held annually in July, Family Day is our way to provide members with a day of outdoor fun for both kids and parents.
This year was no exception. With plenty of key and activity sponsors, hosting tables with attractions ranging from bubble blowing to prize wheels and shooting soccer balls to water tables, Family Day kept everyone fully entertained on Sunday, July 30.
This year, PAMP switched it up by booking award-winning children’s performer Andy Z to sing songs and get everyone up and moving throughout his two shows. As with year’s past, princess magic shows were also part of the Family Day entertainment.
Longtime PAMP member (8 years!) Lori Dinitz said she decided to attend after seeing that Andy Z was performing.
“I’ve been to this event a couple of times before and I know it’s a really fun event for the kids,” she said. “I was extra excited to see that Andy Z was performing … We love him and we love all of the activities. We like the animals – the petting zoo and ponies, and we like the food. We love the food. We had a great time.”
While many PAMP families have been to the event before, there were some families attending for the first time, and some people who happened upon the event and decided to join, like Carmen Rasmussen.
“I’m a grandma and I’m visiting because these little munchkins just moved here,” she said of her grandchildren aged 7, 5 and almost 3. “We were on our way to the Magical Bridge and I saw this … and I thought, ‘what a great way for them to connect.”
Carmen signed the family up for a membership and was extremely interested in getting to meet the vendors, given the family’s recent arrival to the area.
“This is a great event with great resources,” she said. “It’s good stuff for them to have. I found daycare. I found nannies. I found dentistry because when you’re new in town you need to know where to find all of that stuff. I think it was meant to be.”
PAMP would like to thank our key, activity and partner sponsors for helping make this year’s event so great!
