The After Party

the after party

The after party will begin after turnaround, immediately following the daytime activities close.  This will, again, be a family occasion with our staff, vendors and guests encouraged to bring their families, especially the kids.

The entertainers (close-up Magician, Juggler and Fire-Eater) will stay for the evening and the bouncy-castle, bouncy-slide, bucking bronco etc. will be set-up. We have a special live musical act booked for the evening and maybe even a ‘home-grown’ support act too. The bar will be free and the night will be awesome… again.
