“I really enjoy going to this event every year!! I totally recommend getting along! Especially if you have kids! The food is always YUM! The animals and rides are always a big hit! The best thing about it, is your not stressed if the kids run off somewhere because it’s set out well enough you can pretty much see them most of the time!!”
