Family Life Expo Draws Thousands

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Thousands of people attended the largest family trade show in the state Saturday.

The annual Family Life Expo had more than 100 booths. Families got to explore emergency response vehicles, like the Billings Police Crime Scene Investigation truck. New this year was an exhibit from Wise Wonders, a children's museum.

"It's one place that families can go together. Parents can look around and shop while the kids are still being entertained," said Kim Welzenbach, Mack Productions president. "So you don't feel like your family is being imposed upon. You know, it's a great atmosphere for families to come together."

The event is designed to connect community resources to families, for issues ranging from childbirth to adulthood.
