Children's activities available throughout the day will include a moon bounce and obstacle course, and free face painters and tattoo artists will be on-site. Exhibitors representing local organizations, including the Baltimore County Police Department fire rescue, Maryland Air National Guard, Baltimore County Public School "Parentmobile", and many more, will showcase their organizations and provide giveaways.
A number of first-come, first-served free gifts will be distributed, such as Frisbees, five-inch Red Maple tree seedlings, and other items. Box lunches can be purchased from Subway for $2.00, featuring a 6-inch sandwich, chips, cookie or apple, and drink. Valued at approximately $8.00, these meals will be available while they last.
