“2009’s Yeah Baby! Family Expo will not only feature many things to do, but areas to explore,” commented dms Broadcasting Network Promotions and Marketing Manager Phil Vinciullo. “dms Broadcasting is pleased to present a fun and interactive family experience where there is something for everyone to enjoy. We would like to encourage Cayman to come and see what over 20 distributors have to offer, and to enjoy a day of freebies, games and family fun,” he continued.

The event will feature a wide selection of areas for children of all ages to visit including the Activities Garden, where tots can run and play in two bouncing castles, and the HOT 104.1 Sports Skills Area which will have staff on hand from the Girls Football Association. The Storytelling and Arts and Crafts Area will feature lessons on Caymanian heritage, book readings and the friendly blue iguana. Parents can also kick back in the Lions Pride Lounge while learning about the services Lions Productions has to offer, or can head to the Mommy and Me Lounge for a quiet place to feed or change their little ones.

If your family has a flare for competition, the Yeah Baby! Family Expo will be holding the Gerber Baby Boogie Contest, where tykes can dance to the beats of 106.1 KISS FM or The Huggies Diaper Derby being hosted in the Activities Garden at 2:00 pm, sure to be the highlight of the day. There will also be face painting at the Huggies Booth for those who want to don a fun look for the day.

To further enhance the theme of childhood, Lions Productions will be creating a wonderland around the event.

Shari Stutti, Creative Lead of Lions Productions explains, “We wanted to create a world where everyone felt like a small child, so we are bringing in oversized objects that would make even the tallest of Dads feel like he’s a young boy again! Lions Productions is thrilled to be able to create such a youthful and magical environment for all those who plan to attend - this is a big event and we wanted to give it a big personality. We would also like to invite all of the parents to kick back and relax in our Lions Pride Lounge to learn more about what Lions Productions has to offer!”
