Kidabaloo is one of my favorite events that we do here at XL Country all year! It's coming up again on Saturday, April 22, from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. at the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse. It's all about kids and families and it's only $5 to get in!

Here's 5 Things I'm Looking Forward to at This Year's Kidabaloo:

5- UDAP Bear Spray Grizzly Attack Simulator. I did this last year and I couldn't believe how fast a bear can get up on you. See the video below!

4- Smokey Bear. We are both originally from New Mexico, and he's a bear in pants. What's not to like? So far, I kind of have a bear theme going, but that will change with #3.

3- Darth Vader, Princess Leia, Obi Wan Kenobi. Party Princess Productions will again be providing many characters at this year's Kidabaloo. I'm told that this year the characters are performers, too, so I'm hoping to see Darth Vadar & Princess Leia sing a duet of "Daddy's Hands."

2- Easy Peasy Potting Training. I'm not that in to #2 but my wife is. She is a certified potty training instructor and nothing says fun like a poop-themed booth for kids.

1- Anthony "Buckets" Blakes. How awesome is it that a real-life Harlem Globtrotter will be hanging out with us this year at Kidabaloo? Buckets will be there from noon - 1 p.m. He'll perform some basketball tricks and giveaway Globetrotter swag, and he may even invite you to a game of Horse!

Can't wait to see everyone out at Kidabaloo on Saturday, Aprill 22!
