Free Event for Kids Focuses on Non-strenuous Physical Activity
The sixth annual 'Project LEAP!' is set for Saturday, Feb. 7, 2009, at the Lambeau Field Atrium. The free community event is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
'Project LEAP!' (Lambeau's Exercise and Activity Playground) is focused on getting kids out of the house to enjoy non-strenuous physical activity.
In addition to the popular inflatables, obstacles courses, climbing walls and face painting, the day will feature entertainment by the Sideswipe Performance Team, a martial arts-based group that blends traditional martial arts, such as karate and tae kwon do, with gymnastics and acrobatics, to create an extreme, high-flying display of talent, strength and stamina unlike anything else. Based in Los Angeles, Sideswipe has been entertaining audiences across the country over the last three years, performing on television, stage, at sporting events, live action shows and karate tournaments.
The group is scheduled to perform three times: 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m. It also will offer three workshops: 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
'Project LEAP!' is one of four free community events the Packers host each year, each geared toward bringing families together.
