COMO Families: Energy Expo provides education, free food, prizes and fun

Okay, I know. The house, the yard, the car are all screaming for attention. And frankly no one knows how long this exceptionally blissful weather is going to last. But this Saturday, don’t listen to any of them from 11am-3pm. Instead, I want you to punt your normal domestic responsibilities  (at least part of the day) and  bring the whole family to the Energy Expo at the Boone County Fairgrounds. And then I want you to relish the fact that this is a free event with free food and door prizes, kiddo activities and DIY seminars, as you mill around and learn a thing or two about energy efficiency.

Because this event, sponsored by Columbia Water and Light, Boone Electric and MyZouTV is energy-educational, a crowd-pleaser and so worth your time.

Here’s the skinny on some of the highlights:

  • Celebrity mascot, TJ, the adorable tiger from MU Children’s Hospital will make an appearance
  • The Safe Kids Columbia van will offer safety videos for all (and stickers for those young at heart)
  • Power-Town will show what to do when power lines are down and explain how energy travels (so you know when not to touch!)
  • Vendors galore of course will provide ideas, (freebies as mentioned), special deals. The list goes on and on…
  • Contractors (see vendors above)
  • Seminars on all sorts of cool things, like chalking 101

So go. Be irresponsible for a change and ditch the “honey-dos” this Saturday; then, have a little free fun. And bring the kiddies. It’s a one-day package of energy-fun wrapped up with  “green” bow.
