Ready to shake off the cold? Wake Up & Boogie Down!

Written by: Merritt DeWitt

We know cabin fever is setting in and we're all starting to panic - what will we do every weekend for some family fun and to wear out our little ones?

We have the answer and a deal for you!  

Saturday March 2nd 9:30am-12:30pm, we have the best family party of the year planned for you at The Cubby Bear.  Get your tickets for NPN's 5th Annual Wake Up & Boogie Down Family Festival before they are all gone!  This event will sell out and be packed with giggles, smiles, and lots of adorable dance moves.  PLUS our readers save 10% with npnffsave10!

WHEN: Saturday, March 2nd - 9:30am-12:30pm

WHERE: The Cubby Bear - Wrigleyville, 1059 W. Addision (Parking lot and meters available)

WHO: All families are welcome!  Great for kids of all ages - even your little crawlers.

Get ready to jam to live music from The Dreamtree Shakers and Bubbles Academy.  Kids will learn new dance moves with All About Dance.  Babies and crawlers are not forgotten as they have their own play area provided by The Little Gym.  There are more than enough crafts and games as well as healthy snacks for all of the kids. 

The fabulous helpers from Bright Horizons Family Solutions will guide families through rock n' roll makeovers from Rock Candy Salon & Spa, a mini Red Carpet moment after their makeovers with Shay Feeney Photography, musical instrument-making with The Suzuki-Orff School of Music and mini gardening projects with Harvest Moon Farms - there's something for everyone! My kids love the face painting station where they sit (surprisingly!) patiently as a ladybug or a rainbow takes shape their little cheeks.  And the parents are not forgotten as there will be great eats from FoodLife, The Meatloaf Bakery, and Uncle Sammy's and coffee from the Metropolis Coffee Company.

Thank you to Time Out Chicago Kids, 101.9fm The Mix, COUNTRY Financial, BumBulBee Photo & Film,, and all of our generous sponsors!  Check out more fun activities with Language Stars, Urba Baby, American Cancer Society and Children's Dentistry of Bucktown & Wicker Park. If you need to bring your wheels - Britax, BOB, and Stroller Strides will take good care of you at Stroller Parking.  Delicious snacks from Pirate Brands, GoGoSqueeze, Lifeway Kefir, and Happy Family Brands will keep up everyone's energy. 

I can guarantee you a priceless gift - an serious afternoon nap and an easy bedtime! 

Party with all of all of us Saturday, March 2nd!  Tickets are selling out - get yours here and I'll see you in a couple weeks!
