    I plan to attend Friday evening and part of Saturday morning. Do I pay at the door?

    Also, the link above, “View/Download the Flier Here” does not work this evening. I’m trying to locate a schedule of what will be happening. I do have a conflict Saturday beginning at 11:00 am, so will have to miss some of the activities. 🙁
