What a blast!

Over a thousand kids, parents, and sponsors came out for the first ever Great Kid Escape Saturday at the Lufkin Convention Center.  The event was highlighted by our special guest celebrity, Peyton List. 

Peyton List

The 15-year-old actress has been in movies such as 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice', 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid', and '27 Dresses', but has drawn the most notoriety for her role as Emma Ross on the hit Disney show, 'Jessie'.  List did several meet and greets throughout the day and took the stage to answer questions from her wonderful fans.

Over a thousand folks came out for the event.  In addition to List, there were numerous vendors featuring a variety games and activities.  Our friend from Gator Country Adventure Park were also on hand with demonstrations featuring crocodiles, alligators, and a giant tortoise.
