Families with kids looking for something exciting to do don’t have to look very far now that Macaroni Kid is in Ahwatukee Foothills.

The online newsletter and website is a national company with publishers stationed locally. South Phoenix’s new publisher, Amy Tryon, said she’s excited to let people know about activities happening near them.

“I had previously been a subscriber because I like to know where things are going on that I can take my kids to,” Tryon said. “I saw that my area didn’t have one anymore and I just feel like there’s a huge need for parents and families to know what’s going on, and specifically what’s family-friendly. I decided that I would like to do that so other families could enjoy it.”

The south Phoenix branch of Macaroni Kid covers a large area from south Phoenix to Ahwatukee and even out to Tolleson, however, communities like Ahwatukee and south Phoenix seem to have the most going on, Tryon said. Local libraries and shops have the majority of events.

The newsletter is sent out every week for free and contains news and events for families with kids of all ages, from toddlers to teens.

Events can be submitted online at www.southphoenix.macaronikid.com or through email to amytryon@macaronikid.com. The newsletter also contains space for advertising from local companies.
