Our Pack has gone to this event every year and plans to continue to do so. In years past it has been from the Bears on up, but this year they are allowing Lions and all 5 years and up to attend. We mention that because for the younger kids it can be a lot so please don't feel pressured into joining this year as again it will be coming up again in the Spring of next year too if we have anything to say about it.
