An intellectual show, it places Sigmund Freud and C.S. Lewis in a room together. “The conversation and debate sparkles with wit, articulate argument, and some pathos—as well as with surprising civility.” It should captivate audiences!
Yay! Yay! Johnny Appleseed! Food, fun, crafts, and more! I feel like it doesn’t even need explaining.

This is all about fun! There’s a mud pit, hay bale climb, river run, and sand dune climb, all spaced out on a 5K course. It’s basically a tough mudder that you can do with your kids!

It’s a pup-filled, fantastic time! There will be food and vendors, a costume contest for your pets, and more! Go out and support this great cause.
