Many parts of the Quad Cities are still playing it safe when it comes to COVID-19 and are hosting virtual events for people of all ages. These virtual events have been going on for months, and some have even been happening for a year. If you and the kids are looking for new ways to grow and learn, a QC virtual event may be perfect for you!
