Hundreds attend World's Greatest Baby Shower

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds of new and expecting parents from around the Panhandle gathered today at First United Methodist Church in Panama City for tips on parenting.

The Healthy Start Program organized the free event known as The World's Greatest Baby Shower.

It was for moms and dads to educate them on available services for parents and their children. This year marks the 8th edition of the event. While in attendance, parents could check out vendors, educate themselves and even play a few games such as diaper changing races for the dads on replica babies.

"When they come out here, they get to find out everything that is available for them that they wouldn't know otherwise. Whether it be prenatal yoga or an OB doctor's office they didn't know existed or any kind of information, we've got about 48 vendors out here tonight," said Sharon Owens, Executive Director of Healthy Start.

The Healthy Start program is available to everyone, regardless of income level.
