This event will promote mental health and wellness during Mental Health Awareness Month. Families will have an opportunity to engage in a community conversation about mental wellbeing and enjoy crafts, bounce houses, a petting zoo and pony rides, games on the field, a rock-climbing wall, a dance party and much more for the entire family to enjoy!

POUND Fit: As a community, POUND Fit believes we have the ability to inspire a nation, to turn the fitness world on its head, and to truly find alternative ways to ROCK. We aspire to change minds before bodies and use beat and alternative movement to launch people to new heights of self-worth, happiness, and human connection. AKA, release their INNER ROCKSTARS. Instead of listening to music, you become the music in this exhilarating full-body workout that combines cardio, conditioning, and strength training with yoga and Pilates-inspired movements. Using Ripstix®, lightly weighted drumsticks engineered specifically for exercising, POUND transforms drumming into an incredibly effective way of working out.
