Alan having the time of his life at Tribe Fest. 🙂
In what’s quickly becoming a favorite winter tradition, Alan attended Tribe Fest today at the Cleveland Convention Center.
The new events this year seemed to be designed just for Alan – particularly the indoor train ride. We must have gone for a ride five or six different times. Each time Alan had us ride in the caboose, and he smiled the whole time. 🙂
The other new event was a performance training course. Alan ran a race against me, then held his own in a race against some bigger kids. He never misses a chance to show off his speed.
In the game area, Alan had to get in some rounds of darts, air hockey and foosball. Alan would’ve stayed all day if he could!

Today Alan attended Tribe Fest for the second year in a row – this time at the spacious Cleveland Convention Center.
With the added space came the opportunity for additional activities for kids, including air hockey (our favorite), foosball (where Alan broke into a Happy Dance when he scored a goal), and darts (where Alan scored a bullseye!).
But of course there was still hitting and pitching. For the second straight year at Tribe Fest, Alan excelled with the accuracy of his pitches. He threw three straight strikes, capped off by a perfect pitch! It would appear that he’s going to grow up to be a control pitcher.
To conclude a great day, Alan took a picture near one of his favorite Indians (at least favoritely-named), Cody Allen, as he was being interviewed by Channel 3.
Today Alan attended Tribe Fest for the first time! We went straight for the kids activities — Lego building, a pitching accuracy game, and balloons!
At the Lego table, Alan built an awesome airplane with his imagination. At the pitching activity, Alan picked up 2 bullseyes and many more strikes! Once we finally found the balloon station, Alan requested a baseball hat and a sword…and he played with them all night long afterwards.
Can’t wait for the return of baseball season!
