Since 1969 we’ve seen many events come and go.  From showing us your tan to sliding down a giant waterbed, we’ve experienced it all and created great memories.  To help celebrate 50 years of fun, we’re throwing it back and bringing a few oldies out of the archives.

Children’s Fest @ North Side High School

This year – we are proud to announce the return of our Peanut Tootsie Roll Hunt to the Three Rivers Festival.  While organizers were flipping through old Festival Guides an event was stumbled upon that brought a flood of memories back – the Peanut Hunt!  However, as brains prevailed, conscious of peanut allergies becoming more common among kids – it was clear that the subject food needed altered – hence the Tootsie Roll Hunt!
