We hope to have special appearances from the Masked Rider, Raider Red, and even a few Star Wars and Disney characters!

Free t-shirts will be distributed while supplies last!

Local service providers and community agencies will share information on autism resources in our community.

Sorry, no pets or food allowed inside the soccer complex.
