Cardon Children’s Medical Center will host a free community celebration for the pediatric hospital’s 10-year anniversary from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, at the hospital, 1400 S. Dobson Road. The party will take place at “The BIG Outside,” an outdoor play space near the main entrance.
Participants are invited to come dressed as their favorite hero since the theme is a “Heroes Celebration,” though costumes aren’t required. The event will include games, food, superhero characters, a photo booth and giveaways.
