Looking for something fun to do? The great news is you have a ton of amazing options in the Akron area. Here two fun events that you'll want to know about.

Cafe O' Play

Cafe O' Play is an indoor play cafe combining recreation, entertainment, and physically active play in a 9000 square foot facility. It's a perfect place to take your kids ages 10 and under.

Cafe O'Play and Tyrannosaurus Flex Fitness LLC are having Parent and Child Drum Fit ClassClass. The class is taking place on Thursday, April 28, at 9:00am. DrumFIT is a cardio drumming program that combines the mental health benefits of drumming with the overall health benefits of physical fitness for a full body workout. (All materials needed for this workout will be provided.)

This class is for kids and their parent/guardian. Kids are just $18 which includes the cost of the class and you'll also get play time at Cafe O'Play after the event. This is a great way to have a fun morning out of the house. Meet a friend with their kids and make it an event.

If you've never done DrumFit before, that's okay. This event would be a great way to try it out! There are still spots, but make sure to reserve beforehand as space is limited. Here is the link to sign up.

You might even get to meet some local authors in person!
