What should I bring to the event?

Sunscreen, insect repellent, sturdy walking shoes, reusable water bottles (multiple water spigots available throughout the park) and a camera (cell phone cameras are good, but there is very limited connectivity at Blue Spruce Park.) If you want to bike, please bring your bikes and helmets (an excellent way to get around to the many activities!) If you want to fish, bring your own gear.
