Kids Activities

This event is a party for the entire family to enjoy. So, feel free to bring the kids along! They are sure to have a blast at the R3 Kids Zone.

The R3 Kids Zone is an enclosed area located on the corner of 1st street and Methvin. It will encompass 10 large bouncy houses and lots of exciting, kid-friendly games. Additionally, there will be adult supervision provided by Rockers Riders and Ribs volunteers. Therefore, you can drop your child off at the R3 Kids Zone and head out to party with the adults in the main section of the event!

So, how does it work?

On the day of the event, the R3 Kids Zone opens at 1 PM. When you drop your child off, you both will receive matching wristbands. (Be sure to keep this wristband on, as you will not be able to pick up your child without it). Once you have received your wristband and signed all necessary paperwork, you can let your child stay and play in the Kids Zone while you enjoy the music, vendors, and contests. The cost for the R3 Kids Zone is $5 per child, and each child must be picked up when the Kids Zone closes at 6 PM. Find further information about this area, here.
