2023 Charities the Festival is Assisting
This year we will assist the Slate Creek PTO in raising money for the Slate Creek Inclusive Playground Project by using our brand new Waterfall Dunk Tank! You don’t fall in a ton of water, a ton of water is dumped on you!
Caring Hands Humane Society will once again benefit from the Weiner Dog Races and costume contest at the festival. Bring your fur baby to run or dress to impress!
