*NOTE* If there is more than 2 adults that want to come (ie. Grandparents visiting from out of town etc.), they are able to purchase a separate ticket each as there is limited space. Please keep in mind that this takes a space away from a participating baby so please be courteous and limit this to 2 additional adults per group MAX. As well, we want to give our artists as much space as they can to explore so additional adults are asked to find a seat on the outskirts and observe. Thank you for your understanding!
