On Saturday, October 27, your kids can hold a (surprisingly heavy) Olympic medal, take their picture with it, and take home their very own medal personalized by London 2012 medalist Maya Lawrence. Parents can meet Maya’s mom, Pat Lawrence, and find out what it’s like to raise a child who became an Olympian. Register here to attend the event – $5 admits up to six family members.
Other surprise swag? The Metro Moms are giving away the latest line of travel strollers and designer diaper bags from Baby Cargo. In addition to hundreds of giveaways for parents and kids plus healthy treats from 17 vendors. Plan your swag session by scoping out the vendor list.
