You will be working in an outdoor historic village. Our anticipated audience (families) could be over 800 people. You will be assisting with logistics for up to 30-40 vendors. You have to be comfortable working with large crowds.
Lots of walking and moving around to assist our vendors. May need to move some light weight 6 ft. tables. This is an outdoor event so you may need to work in inclement weather
