We rely heavily on volunteers to help us make this event a success, with duties such as:

  • Education and Guest Safety
  • Merchandise Sales
  • Silent Auction
  • Information Booth
  • Raffle Ticket Sales
  • Children's Games
  • Face Painting
  • Concessions
  • Registration
  • Parking

We hope that you will join our team and become part of an amazing experience!
