Please note, that from now on, all adults must have a wrist band to participate in either the parade or costume contest.
This year we will ship out the pre-ordered wrist bands before the event to ensure a shorter line.
We will only print once and ship two weeks prior to the event. So, the ordering deadline will be September 11, 2019, with a shipping date of Monday September 13, 2019.
We will offer wrist bands and limited merchandise at the Clarion Inn Friday night and the event on Saturday. But, supplies will be limited, so we encourage you to order in advance to guarantee your preferred t-shirt, size and color. (And, to avoid the line!)
