Marlborough – Local kids were invited to experience the magic of reading at the Solomon Pond Mall Feb. 17 as part of the Simon Malls® Simon Kidgits Club®  free annual “Book Blast.”

Special guests, including Marlborough Mayor Arthur Vigeant, took some time to read to the children in attendance. Children were also invited to bring a new or gently used book to the event to be donated to “Big Hearted Books,” which donates books back to local families in need.

Kids also had the chance to make their own pizza courtesy of restaurant Pizzeria Regina. And “Finz,” the Worcester Sharks mascot, also made a special guest appearance.

The Simon Kidgits Club is a fun and informative program that focuses on health, wellness, education, safety and entertainment for children ages 3-8. Since 2003, the Simon Kidgits Club has kept children and parents alike amused with various events and activities while providing incentives for club members, such as special offers, rewards and games.
