(Oceanside, N.Y., March 3, 2019) – On Sunday afternoon, nine-time Best Long Island Mascot, QuackerJack, paid a visit to the Kidz Zone Expo, presented by Herald Community Newspapers.

The free event was held at the Barry and Florence Friedberg Jewish Community Center from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. While there, QJ said hello to hundreds of children in attendance and posed for pictures with many kids and parents. The lovable mascot also browsed around the vendor booths to meet experts from many local business and show off some dance moves while a live DJ played popular music.

In addition to free admission, children also enjoyed free giveaways, arts and crafts, face painting, balloon art, goody bags, demos, prizes and so much more. QuackerJack invited all the kids out to Opening Night of Ticket Sales on March 22nd so that they could purchase tickets with their family to enjoy a fun-filled night at the ballpark this summer.
