We do not run any of these events and encourage you to call or visit the websites of the hosting locations, organizations, or stores with any questions and to confirm details. Many paid events and some free events require tickets or registration in advance and some may sell out or fill up quickly or very far in advance. Age and other recommendations are general guidelines provided by the event or activity organizer and should not be considered legal or medical advice and may not apply well to all children.
