Many valley residents were in attendance at the Badlands Community on March 8 to explore the many spingtime leisure activites available in the community.

The Fall Sports Recreation and Arts Expo is being considered successful and has received lots of feedback in order to improve in future years.

"They think it is a great way to find ideas for their kids and for themselves, good entertainment, fun for kids and it shows what is available for the community," said Amber Leavitt with the Badlands Community Facility. "We're really looking to hopefully grow the demos at our future expos."

The event saw over 150 people in attendance and out of that 52 were respondents to their survey.

"The reason why people come to the expo is because they find it easy to register for springtime sports," explained Leavitt. "They like to come to the expos to see what the community has to offer and to see the demonstrations that we have too."

"On our expo survey we asked what kind of booths the community would like to see at the expo," added Leavitt. "The community was missing hockey, archery, walking clubs, kids activities under the age of 2, music lessons, martial arts, and dance."

She added that the survey results indicated that the community would mainly like to see more vendors and demos at future expos.
