RSVP: Send an email to email@example.com with your name, number of adults and children attending, and the ages of the children. Please note that space is limited, so RSVP as soon as possible!
Important: All participants must bring this waiver on the day of the event and sign it on-site (parents can sign for minors under 18 yrs.)
What to bring: Whenever possible, kids should bring their own safety equipment. For kids aged 13 and under, that includes helmet, elbow and knee pads, and wrist guards. For ages 13+ they require only a helmet. Kids should dress in running shoes and jeans for skateboarding, as jeans help the knee pads stay on better. If a child does not have equipment, they also have some available for rent (OPACC will cover any rental cost). Some scooters will be available for use at the event, however kids are also welcome to bring their own scooters, roller blades, and skateboards.
Food: There is no outside food allowed. Food including pizza, chicken dogs, drinks, and snacks will be available free of charge. Light refreshments will be served starting at 8 a.m.
