Sponsors will have everything from snacks to finger food to arts and crafts and much more. Adults accompanying children receive snacks/drinks free. Free for Simon Kidgits members, only $5 annual membership to become a member. (The $5 membership comes a T-shirt, tons of coupons and discounts, a birthday gift and more).

Have fun!
