CULLMAN, Ala. – On Saturday, April 13, the Cullman Family Expo, organized by the Cullman County Child Development Center parent-teacher organization (PTO), delivered a spectacular event aimed at supporting local families and raising funds for children with disabilities who attend the CDC. With a focus on community resources and family fun, the expo exemplified inclusivity and well-executed organization, making it a memorable day for attendees.

The expo grounds, inside and outside, buzzed with activity as local vendors displayed a diverse array of products and services, from custom hats, homemade kettle popcorn and handmade earrings as well as providing information booths about essential behavioral services. Music filled the air for attendees as Justin Pace, a local DJ, played requested tunes, adding a vibrant soundtrack.

For the children, the event had it all, featuring face painting, a bounce house and a giant slide that became an obvious huge hit among the younger crowd. Characters like Iron Man, Mr. Incredible and Captain America, as well as the legendary CDC Lion, Lenny, roamed the event, giving kids an endearing experience as they had the opportunity to interact with their favorite heroes. Many vendor booths had free goodies and activities for the children to interact with.

To support ongoing projects for the CDC, the expo also included several raffles with impressive prizes ranging from artwork by local artists to luxury items like a non-toxic Caraway Roasting Pan and a Toyota Sequoia 12V electric ride-on vehicle. The chance to win “Chicken salad for a year” from Chicken Salad Chick was another highlight, drawing eager participants.
