Baby Palooza Comes to the Gulf Coast

Caring for a child is a daunting task. It’s only the biggest job a parent will ever have. For the first time, Baby Palooza is coming to the Coast to get parents prepared to the job.

Both new parents and those with a bit more experience will find all they need under one roof this weekend at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum. Baby Palooza will be on the Gulf Coast Saturday only from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Coliseum Convention Center, and if it has to do with babies, moms, or outfits that are just too cute, you’ll find it there.

Baby Palooza will feature booths from every imaginable baby themed company. Local hospitals will be discussing the latest in pre and post natal technology, and there will even be a Diaper Dash with prizes. Winn Dixie will be giving away a year’s worth of diapers to one lucky family and WXXV is giving away two family packs for the upcoming Disney Junior Live at the Coliseum. News 25 spoke with the director Friday about why this event is so important for Gulf Coast families.

Gina Borrelli, an expectant mother, says, "My girlfriends and I plan to be there early to get all the door prizes possible and jump in on all the goodies that they have, but I’m hoping that I’ll have some things I haven’t thought about be presented to me for when he finally does come.”

The first 400 attendees will receive a gift bag with over $200 in coupons, and men, don’t worry about getting dragged to the event because Best Buy has set up a man cave with Xbox Ones and PS4s, featuring Forza Motorsports and Madden ‘15 to keep you busy while the ladies shop.
