Bring your friends and as the venue advises: All ages will be granted entrance into the parade of festivities from 12pm-6pm. The amusements will then transition to strictly 18 and older as an evening of local brews, themed specialty drinks, and costumes unfold. You can sign up for trivia and beer pong by speaking to a Game Warden once you get into the event.
