I’m willing to guess very few of you would look to the airport in search of free family activities. The words “family” and “airport” may very well traumatize you as they spark memories of failed security line inspections (I forgot the damn sippy cup in my purse again!) or the time you were THAT mom with THAT kid on the airplane.
Those memories may very well also include the time the TSA agent was kind and patient as you loaded your stroller, Ergo, diaper bag, backpack, etc. onto the conveyor belt.
For me, it’s definitely a combination. Having traveled quite a bit for my job and to see family out of state throughout the years, I’ve developed an appreciation for our local airport. Nothing beats flying out of Reno – our TSA agents are the best (No really, they have a national recognition for their commitment to customer service) and even with kids in tow, an hour is usually plenty of time to get through security and to your gate on time.
So, where am I going with all this?
In honor of International Children’s Book Day, the Reno-Tahoe International Airport is hosting a free event on Wednesday, April 2 from 10:30 am to 11:15 am at baggage claim.
They’ve teamed up with KNPB to have Curious George, as well as airport police and fire,and their Paws for Passengers dogs, at the event. Free parking, snacks, and a celebration of reading – hooray! Something to do over spring break! The airport’s random acts of kindness is quite rad.
What other fun activities do you have lined up for Washoe County’s spring break? Share your ideas in the comments!
