Fun Fair has been moved inside!

Rain is forecasted on Saturday, so the Fun Fair is moving inside…There will still be lots of games and activities, including the animal show which begins at 5 pm.

Pre-ordered tickets can be picked up at the Hodgson front entrance.  Wristbands have been substituted for 12 tickets for all advance orders.

There will be no water bottles or juice boxes, so please bring your reusable water bottles.  The City H20TOGO truck will be there to provide water refills.  Hamburgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers, chicken wings and other food will be available for purchase with tickets.
