If you are walking with seniors or younger family members, please designate a “meet up” place in case you get separated from your group. We would suggest one of the Team Meet up flags in the center of the festival area. They are Yellow, Blue, Orange or Purple.

If you need to report a misplaced person or item, please come to the Volunteer tent.

It will be cool in the morning and likely warmer in the afternoon, so we suggest dressing in layers.
