Thinking and tinkering takes a lot of energy! Re-fuel with an out-of-this world kids meal from Black Oak Hot Dogs  ($7 kids meal includes hot dog, chips and a drink). 

Parking is free in lots and along the street. Given the anticipated size of the crowd, however, we strongly encourage families to walk, scoot, and/or bike to the event.


The event is rain or shine. Fingers crossed for some beautiful almost-fall weather!
