How will I know whether I can get a free emergency backpack at the fair instead of a free first aid kit?

We have a very limited number of emergency backpacks left over from the fair last year. They will be distributed on a first come, first served basis to those pre-registered attendees who indicate a preference for the backpack on their registration. One emergency backpack or one first aid kit per pre-registered family, while supplies last.

If my family pre-registers and we have 2 adults who attend the fair, can we get both a free backpack and a free first aid kit?

No. Each family, irrespective of the number of adults attending the fair, may only receive one free emergency backpack or one first aid bag and first aid supplies. These will be given only to families that pre-register, on a first come, first served basis, while suppllies last.

Can attendees who register at the fair receive a free first aid kit.

If we have first aid kits left remaining at the fair at approximately 2pm, non-registered, walk-in attendees may get a first aid kit (one per family, while supplies last.)

What are my parking options at the fair?

No parking will be allowed on Ashby, but there will be street parking in the surrounding neighborhood. Parking permit requirements will not be enforced during the event. We highly recommend if you live close to Overland Elementary School that you walk to the fair, if possible. And don't forget that kids should bring their bikes and helmets if they want to participate in the bicycle safety workshop/bike rodeo. Also bring a bike lock so they can lock up their bikes when not using them.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

There is no need to print your ticket if you are able to show it to us on your phone.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
