You’re invited to join us Saturday, May 6th from Noon-5PM for a day full of gear testing and outdoor fun!

It’s your chance to crawl into that tent you’ve been eyeing, rest your bones on that sleeping pad (the one you didn’t believe would give you enough cushion) or fire up that base camp stove to see that it really does live up to the hype.

And as if that weren’t enough,e’ll have eats, treats, classes, yard games and raffle prizes throughout the day!

This event is FREE to the public and is located at Shelter #3 in Jester Park (located near the playground and amphitheatre)

Raffle tickets may be purchased with all proceeds going to support our Co-Sponsor Polk County Conservation.

Stay tuned – more prizes will be released as we get closer to the event.
