KaBOOM! Play Together Tour Powered by Disney Parks Brings Playtime to Families Across the United States
From coast to coast and points in between, the KaBOOM! Play Together Tour powered by Disney Parks will travel to six cities across America for fun-filled family play events that encourage meaningful connections between children and the influential adults in their lives.
The free events, which kick-off August 16-17 in Anaheim, will feature a playful obstacle course designed by Disney Imagineers. Families will design their team flags and make their way through the various games and team-building stations to build tunnels, solve puzzles, and play together. Once they have finished, they can enjoy the imagination play zone and explore family volunteering opportunities.
While there is no doubt to the importance of quality family time, research supported by Disney Parks and completed by the Search Institute and Center for Childhood Creativity has underscored the powerful influence that spending meaningful time together has on a child’s success in school and involvement in their community.
“We are thrilled to work with Disney once again and provide another creative way in which families can spend meaningful and playful bonding time together,” said KaBOOM! CEO and Founder Darell Hammond. “At KaBOOM!, we advocate for the balanced and active play kids need to thrive, and are excited to present this unique opportunity for families.”
“For nearly 60 years, we’ve made our mark creating places where families can connect and spend meaningful time together,” said Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Chairman Tom Staggs. “Through our work with KaBOOM!, we are able to bring that expertise to communities around the country to help nurture, inspire, and empower kids and families.”
To register and join the fun, families can visit kaboom.org/playtogether. The dates and locations of each tour stop, slated to run from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. each day, are:
