As our weather is very unpredictable in April, the Hayden Schools have graciously agreed to rotate the event each year by hosting at their schools; Atlas Elementary is hosting this year. The event will take place on the school’s grassy field. In case of inclement weather, the event will be moved into the gymnasium.
