5 Reasons to Attend Hanging With Heroes

Kansas City Mom Collective’s Hanging with Heroes event is just around the corner, and you don’t want to miss the super-sized fun! This FREE event on Saturday, Sept. 30 at Zona Rosa takes place from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. and invites heroes big and small to gather together to make our community a better one.

Here are 5 Reasons to Attend Hanging With Heroes

5. We’re Giving Back

Kansas City is full of many wonderful organizations that care for the children of Kansas City. Two of them will be featured at Hanging With Heroes: The Children’s Place

and Feed Northland Kids. Contributing to these organizations at our event means more than you know.

Remember, this event is FREE but please bring the following donations:

  • a box of fruit snacks (individually wrapped)
  • a box of granola bars

4. A Morning Full Of Fun

The fun doesn’t stop from the moment you enter Hanging With Heroes to the moment you leave. Our amazing sponsors will be hosting fun superhero training, villain toss, arts and crafts, photo booths and more. DJ Miles will keep the tunes going for some pretty epic dance-offs and your kids will have a blast playing in Zona Rosa’s playground and fountain. You’ll also be able to grab a bite to eat or a treat from Bravo! Italian Kitchen and Kona Ice Clay County/North Kansas City. Make sure you stop by the Kansas City Mom Collective table for your chance to win passes to the Kansas City Symphony’s family show Heroes and Villians taking place this November.

3. The Community Heroes

It’s not every day your child gets to climb into a military vehicle or rub elbows with the women and men who keep our communities safe. Come visit the U.S. Army, the KCMO Fire Department and the KCMO Police Department.  Meet those who make a difference in our community, and check out their awesome vehicles.

2. The Photo Ops

Make sure your photo is fully charged because you’ll want to capture the thrill and delight of your little one when they meet some of their favorites! We want to give a special thanks to Fry Orthodontic Specialists for being our Photo Stop Sponsor!

1. The Superheroes

Our friends at Planet Anime Kansas City have called up some of their famous friends, and your family will have a chance to meet these caped crusaders! From superheroes to Star Wars, the kids and kids at heart will be so excited to meet everyone. Don’t miss out on stopping by Planet Anime Kansas City’s booth for your chance to win passes to their event running October 20-22 at Bartle Hall.
