There will be games and bouncy houses for all little Munchkins!

You can enjoy live, local entertainment that will be performing throughout the day with RBC the Band culminating the afternoon.

Come be amazed by the magic by award winning magician Keith Leff!

Dress up the little ones and have them go trick-or-treating through the Land of Oz and meet Dorothy and her friends!

Everyone is invited to come as your favorite Oz character and enter the look-a-like contest!

Try your luck at the money grab tornado!
