Bounce House Supervisors
Checkin and Registration  (volunteers, attendees, exhibitors)
Facilities (water, trash pickup, portapotties, etc)
Parking & Safety

OR this year we are trying something fun: connecting volunteers with exhibitors to build really cool hands on booths.  If you would like to work with an exhibitor, please pick a category and we will assign you to a REALLY cool exhibitor in the category.   Note: we might not have exhibitors in these categories, so bear with us if we have to change your assignment.

Example, if you select "Art", we might have you volunteer with a hands on chalk art activity in the parking lot.

Can you help an exhbitor in one of these categories?
