"It exists everywhere but it looks different. it may look different from one family to another whether it's nursing directly or pumping milk and providing it via a bottle. We want to show that to the community so that there's a support and understanding of what it looks like," said Julie Satterwhite, the event organizer.

The event is free at the Salem Red Sox stadium this Saturday. It starts at 9 a.m. and is hosted by B.R.E.A.S.T. Roanoke.

There will be food, kids activities and vendors.

10 News anchor Jenna Zibton will be the emcee.
