Attendees will take a self-guided tour through the hospital, visiting a variety of education stations along the way. Ambulance and fire truck tours also are planned.
In addition to the tours, the event will feature snacks, crafts and — if the weather cooperates — an inflatable obstacle course and bounce house.
