    Hey Sara! Just read this post and wanted to let you know that the Parenting Expo will be at the Monroeville Convention Center this year, NOT the David L Lawrence Center. Just wanted to make sure that people won’t get confused. But thanks for adding it to the list!

      Fixed that typo :) Thanks!
