Are you looking for something different to enjoy with your kids? You can try these games and more at the FX Live Kidz Blitz event this weekend: Ultimate Chicken and Bone Challenge, Flying TP Blast, and the Gator Snot Drop. Your curiosity will bring you to Stubbs Park in Centerville on Saturday just to see what this is all about.
Roger Fields of Kidz Blitz Ministries in Nicholasville, Ky., has been bringing this supercharged production to communities across the country, and Hope Church leaders in Dayton thought it would be a great idea to host the event in the local area.
“We wanted to provide a dynamic, fun and safe event for kids in our community this summer,” said Hope Church lead pastor Jason Bunger. “There’s no better way for kids to learn about God and His plan for us than through music, games and laughter. We hope to be a resource for families in the Miami Valley.”
With lights, fog and a parodied soundtrack of ’70s and ’80s tunes, families will also witness the Mama’s Pajama Jump and Grandpa’s Rubber Face challenges. The high-paced program lets families experience Biblical truths communicated in a fun way through special effects and illustrative interaction.
There will be inflatables and giant-sized props. The emphasis is on the family as the” home team” that can work together toward a common goal. Parents and kids can volunteer to participate on stage in a variety of fun and silly games.
“This is one event where kids, moms, dads, grandparents, aunts and uncles actually get to do something,” said Fields. “We believe in getting everyone involved. We turn spectators into participants.”
