CES Fall Festival 
October 29, 2019 from 5:30-7:00 PM


The bracelet gives your child unlimited access to all Fall Festival games and activities. The bracelet may not be used for food purchases or prize tickets. Prize tickets and food may be purchased separately the night of the event. Just a reminder a bracelet may not be shared by children. All children participating will need a bracelet. 

If purchased early, you will save money and time!! You will be able to get your pre-purchased bracelet at 5:15 instead of 5:30 so that you are ready to go in when the doors open at 5:30. Bracelets are being sold for $10.00. This price will be good until Monday, October 28th at 2:30 PM. (Any bracelet purchased after that time will be $12.00.)
