Parents - Take the scare out of ER care and ease children’s anxiety related to a medical setting. This event is a great opportunity to help kids become comfortable around medical personnel and the medical equipment they may experience on a visit to the doctor or hospital.

Parking is available in the Hospital parking ramp, located on the corner of South 8th Street and Chicago Avenue. Street parking is also available close to the event location.
