The events will take place from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 12 at Joe Baca Middle School in Bloomington and 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 3 at Cooley Ranch Elementary School in Colton. These annual events offer a venue where families can enjoy a variety of entertainment and also find information about college and career readiness; physical and mental health resources; early childhood education; public safety; libraries and nutrition.

Carrasco continues on to state that they want to give families the opportunity to utilize the service the community has to offer by being the "middleman" in the community.
