Knoxville Moms, a local online resource for mothers and families, hosted its 2nd Annual “Meet Your Superhero” event at Cool Sports, Home of the Icearium on Sunday, March 8. Not only were the typical characters on hand to meet children and parents — Batman, Captain America, Spiderman and Wonder Woman, among them — but also present were first responders from Rural/Metro and the Knox County Sheriff’s Office.

“We really do love that the kids come and dress up and meet the superheroes, but we really love that we have our real heroes here, the police and firefighters,” said Natalie Richardson, founder and owner of Knoxville Moms.
