The Florida Department of Health in Marion County (FDOHMC), and its partners at the Healthy Start Coalition of North Central Florida, has rescheduled the “World’s Greatest Baby Shower.”

Postponed by the recent surge in COVID-19 cases, and to better protect participants, the Baby Shower is now a drive-thru event scheduled for 1 to 3 p.m. on Feb. 26. It will be held at Kingdom Revival Church, 3318 E. Silver Springs Blvd., Ocala, adjacent to the Publix in the Forest East Shopping Center.

The event is free for soon-to-be parents or those with children 12 months old or younger. Fathers are also encouraged to attend. Participants will receive goodie bags and can enter a drawing for prizes.

In addition to the drive-thru session, the Baby Shower’s hosts will invite participants to register for a virtual presentation and educational quiz following the event. Participants who register will be provided links to the Zoom event, scheduled for 10 a.m. on March 4. The virtual presentation will feature a live drawing for prizes.
