The DECC will be transforming the Lake Superior Ballroom into a giant play area for families.

The free Pop Up Play Event happens on Saturday, January 5th from 9 AM until 1 PM. Parking will be $5 per vehicle and some light snacks and coffee will be available for sale.

Several Twin Ports businesses and organizations like the Duluth YMCA, Duluth Public Library and Legacy Toys are bringing the play equipment, mainly geared at ages 8 and under, to fill the 26,000 sq feet of play area.

A quiet room will also be available next to the ballroom for parents or kids who need a break.
