The first event of our family weekend grants the time to pick up your welcome and/or ticket packages, meet and fellowship with family members, and hear more about the fabulous weekend that lies ahead. This event will also serve as our Family Game Night! This will give our family time to enjoy live entertainment and bond all while enjoying ourselves with games that promote the foundation of what it means to be family: unity. Each household should plan to wear the same or similar colors as each other to this event. There will be light refreshments provided.
