Kids of all ages will have a chance to bounce away in dozens of inflatable attractions on February 19 and 20 during school break from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

A variety of other games and activities will be offered including food and drink options. Bounce sessions for kids over the age of five are $15. Admission for kids five and under is $5, which includes admittance to the toddler zone only. Toddler Zone will feature a unique space for the little ones to be able to enjoy bouncing and other interactive inflatables without the interference of older kids. Entrance for adults, if not bouncing, is free. Doors open at 9:00 a.m. Sessions are one hour and 30 minutes long and are limited to 500 kids.

“Thanks to the support of our sponsors, we are delighted that we are able to provide a fun activity for area kids to participate in over winter break,” said Doug McClaine, general manager of the Albany Capital Center. “As a parent, I understand the challenge of keeping kids occupied over vacations and we are providing a variety of wonderful activities for kids of all ages to take part in. We hope to make it an annual event.”

“We’re thrilled to partner with B95.5 and the Albany Capital Center on the inaugural CDPHP Bounce Bonanza,” said Dr. John D. Bennett, president and CEO of CDPHP. “The event will undoubtedly offer kids a healthy and fun way to burn off energy during this cold winter season.”

“As the Capital Region’s premiere family radio station B95.5 is thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with the Albany Capital and our sponsors on launching this exciting family friendly event,” said A.J. Bodden, general manager, B95.5 and Albany Broadcasting. “As the only locally owned broadcast media company in the area we remain committed to supporting events that provide local families with fun and safe activities all rear round.”
