Frequently asked questions

  • Can we bring our pet?

This event is hugely popular, drawing large crowds with lots of kids. While most pets are friendly, the large volume of people can cause anxiety in some pets along with safety concerns for some attendees. This decision is made with the utmost consideration for the health and wellbeing of both pets and event participants. As fellow participants and animal lovers, we thank you for your understanding in implementing this policy. Assistance animals such as guide dogs are welcome in all areas.
