Techie Family Meet & Play

A get together for UX folk and other Akron/Kent/Cleveland/Youngstown area techies with kids (or without) who would like to have some adult chatter while the kids play. Spouses can be in the same place at the same time and kids can find new friends. :)

Patterson's Fruit Farm is well worth the drive. They have endless fun for kids of all ages. http://www.pattersonfarm.com/

When you arrive, park and get your tickets ($8.00 per person). There is a horse driven hay ride up the hill (11:00 am to 4:00 pm) to get to the main activities (you can walk). Call Carol (330)[masked] after you get on the hay ride and I'll meet you near the hay barn. 

Stop by any time during the afternoon.  I will update the MeetUp if the weather is too ugly and we'll try to reschedule later in the month.



For future reference here were the other ideas:
- Fun N' Stuff amusement park http://www.fun-n-stuff.com/
- Kalahari Waterpark in Sandusky http://www.kalahariresorts.com/ohio
- Bowling at AMF Riviera Lanes in Fairlawn
- Cleveland Children's Museum http://www.clevelandchildrensmuseum.org/
- Pottery painting at All Fired Up in Fairlawn http://www.allfiredupakron.com/
- Romp N' Stomp http://www.rompnstompcenter.net/
- Akron or Cleveland Zoo (weather dependent)
- Playground and/or walking path (weather dependent)
- Lock 3 Ice Rink/sledding (weather dependent)

    We were looking forward to this, but my son has a fever this morning so it looks like well have to pass! Hopefully we can make it next time. Enjoy!

    This is the correct address for the Family Fun Fest: 8765 Mulberry Road, Chesterland, Ohio
    The previous address was for the market and is only 5 minutes away if you go there by mistake.

    Hi, I've been wanting to attend and meet up for quite some time, but with picking up kids after work, it hasn't worked out. This seems like the perfect arrangement. My only fear is not finding any of you since it's my first meet up in this group. :). I think the family will have fun regardless, so heading out tomorrow!

      Awesome! You will definitely have fun - and hopefully we'll also get to meet. :)

    Hi everyone - I was looking forward to bringing our son Alec ( 6 yo ) to the farm tomorrow; but my beloved, spontaneous out-of-town father decided to come visit us Saturday. Carol, thanks so much for organizing this and including us. Looks like you'll have a nice, warm fall day to play outside.

    Cheers!

      The weather does look perfect for tomorrow. My kids are very excited. Sorry to miss so many of you - perhaps we can try another family outing in the spring. :-)

    I'm excited for the weekend fun. Sorry to miss Sarah, Matt and others. Next time!

    Love the idea, but can't make it the next couple weekends. Have fun!

  • Matt S.

    Great idea! Unfortunately we already have out of town plans this weekend

    Might be fun* not fall. :)

    All great ideas! My preferred location would be dependent on what week we are all available to do this. Patterson's or a pumpkin patch might be fall if we want to do some outdoor fall stuff, but the museums and pottery sound like a lot of fun, too!

  • Brad C.

    This is a cool idea. Also, Patterson's is a fun place this time of year.

    Excellent Sarah! The hope is we will all be able to bring those hubbies and wives. Josh and I have only attended one or two tech events together in the past 7 years.

    Definitely interested in this! Probably with Logan, and maybe with my hubby Kevin too (provided work doesn't call - he's an IT guy).
