Welcome Reception

Celebrate with us at the welcome reception. Attendance is open to all registered attendees. Preorder tickets for the buffet are being sold at $13 for adults, $9 for children under 12. Price is $20 for adults and $15 for children under 12 at the door while supplies last. While in the past the buffet was included, we’re trying our hardest not to raise overall attendance prices. In order to do so, we’ve found it necessary to add a fee for the meal portion of the event.
