Moonlight Madness 8:00 pm – 1:00am

From 4pm to 6pm we are excited to introduce a time specifically for anyone that wants to enjoy the fair, but needs a time that is a little less stimulating than normal with all of the lights and noise. During this Sensory Friendly time, the Fair will create an environment designed with children and adults with autism or sensory processing disorders in mind. The goal is to enable families who have a member, whether child or adult, with special needs, to explore and enjoy the Fair. At 6pm lights and sounds will resume as normal.
