Children of all ages can take part in a variety of games, arts and crafts, as well as a bounce house. Guests will also have the opportunity to participate in a raffle and receive complimentary food. And in solidarity with the Moms Demand Action and Everytown Survivor Network, we will also wear the color orange to honor all victims of gun violence and survivor families in our city, state and nation.
