At the Kids Kamp the fun was complete with a bounce house, Gym equipment, fan making, crafts, bean bag toss game and more!

For a complete festival atmosphere, the Central Park hosted 13 vendors and food trucks.

The Luminaria Ceremony is the highlight of Relay For Life – with a Remember slideshow and Luminaria personalized paper-bag lamps dedicated to loved ones lining the path of the 24-hour lap,  while participants walk the track holding a candle (some brought flame-less candles for the little ones).
