What Does an Incredibly Fantastic Event Look Like in Yakima?
I wanted to give a shout-out to Moms and Dads everywhere! Raising kids isn't easy but you're out here crushing it. Keep it up and also make sure to take a moment to pat yourselves on the back. You deserve it.
On Saturday of Easter weekend, 107.3 KFFM did a live broadcast at McDonald's on 40th and River Road, teaming up with Yakima Valley Rocks ( a free group of rock painting enthusiasts) providing a chance for the little ones and big ones to come out and paint a rock to either take home and keep forever or hide for someone to find in the community.
I've done events for over 20 years and I have to say, Saturday's event is in my top five favorites of all time! Why? YOU, Yakima Valley! The McDonald's staff was on point! General Manager Catalina and Shift Manager X were both dressed as bunnies, which was fantastic because I was too! They blew up a giant Ronald McDonald that was taller than the building that all the kids were going wild for! They kept wondering where the entrance was, they kept thinking it was a bouncy house it was so big. Very impressive and very nostalgic.
The kids and parents were so happy to be there. I had a Mom come up to me nearing the end of the event, almost bursting into tears about how important this was to her and her daughter, being a single mom, they weren't going to be able to do this on Easter.
I got to meet listeners who told me their stories, it's always such a pleasure to hear that you listen and why! The kindness from everyone and the excitement from the kids was at a high without tipping over the edge into crazy town and it all wrapped up with an Easter Egg hunt in the play area.
PERFEGGTION! hee hee
Thank you from the bottom of my heart! It's been quite a while since we have been able to gather together and it was just THE best. What could have been a cold, grey, rainy day was filled with so much sunshine!
