Will it be noisy?

YES, if you attend the event between the hours of 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM. One of the fun things about attending this event for kids is the opportunity to sound the horns. Foam ear plugs (one size fits all) will be provided at entrance while supplies last. However, it is recommended that you bring your child more size appropriate ear plugs to use or ear muffs if needed. There will also be Horn Free Hours from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm for children who don’t do well with loud noises.

Why should I come early?

Horn Free Hours: 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Foam ear plug supplies are limited, so you’ll want to arrive early enough to get a pair, unless you bring your own.

Will there be food on-site?

There will be hot dogs, chips, and drinks on-site. You will receive 1 hotdog voucher per wristband purchased which will be avaiable while supplies last and drinks/chips will be available for purchase for $1 each. Additional hotdogs can be secured with the purchase of chips and a drink. No outside food allowed.

Can I bring my pet?

Due to the noise and number of children at the event, no pets are allowed except licensed service animals.

What if it rains?

This is a rain-or-shine event!
