FAQ's

1. Can my child attend events with an age limit if they are older than the age limit specified?

  • Yes!. Although we sometimes have to specify an age limit, you as a parent know what best meets the needs of your child. We welcome all who are young at heart at our events. 
    • At each event, you can get a wristband for your child at the Civic Events booth that will signify to staff and volunteers that your child is able to attend or be in that age specified area, even if they don’t appear to fit into the age category specified. This will ensure that your child can enjoy the event without interruption.

2. Can I register my child for registration only events if they are over the age advertised? 

  • Yes! Please choose the "Other" option in the age category and then specify in the notes the age of your child.  Also, please include any information in the notes that can help us ensure that your child has an enjoyable time while participating.
