JUST IN CASE: If we cannot hold the sport games and tournaments, we will be having a small health fair with a select group of tents, similar to a Farmer's Market that participants can visit throughout the day. If some groups want to do an mini event within their group, we will have prizes for the winners (contact us at for more info).
