For millions of families across America, the approaching “Back-2-School” season is filled with kids excited to see their school mates, and parents following close behind with hand sanitizer and tissues. Aventura Hospital and Medical Center wants to help parents and children prepare for school with its Back-2-School Fair on Saturday, August 18 from 1 to 4 p.m. A free community event for the whole family, the fair will promote a safe and healthy return to school.
The family-centered event will feature a bike safety course, free helmet fittings and AMBER Alert registration, compliments of Aventura Police; and kids will have the opportunity to dress-up and tour a live fire truck with the City of Hallandale Beach and Miami-Dade County Fire Rescue. In the background, CooLAM Dance Studio will entertain the crowd with music and games as grandparents, parents and kids alike excitedly pose with the famous McGruff the Crime Dog.
In the spirit of education, professionals from Aventura Hospital and Medical Center will participate and provide valuable tips at educational booths throughout the fair. Experts will be on hand to offer advice on such hot topics as injury prevention, heart health, cyber-bullying, diabetes, allergies and more.
The event is free and open to the public. Parking will be available in the north parking garage with a free voucher upon event registration, and valet services will additionally be available.
Aventura Hospital and Medical Center is located at 20900 Biscayne Boulevard in Aventura.
