Last year there were three characters and BB8. I believe that this will be plenty again, as we will alternate with princesses. If more, they can mingle in/outside with guests.

Food and drink will be provided to all characters in attendance. The event itself is a community event centered around pre-school and adolescent children. The event drives bicycle safety, but involves many different organizations from the local children’s hospital, EMS service, Law enforcement agencies, health department, child protective services, and many, many others. This is the 3rd year for the event. It provides helpful information to parents, entertainment for children, and at the same time teaches them about some of the dangers they may face with fires, bicycle safety, animal safety, water safety, etc. Referred by: I work for TriStar StoneCrest, one of the event sponsors, and am part of the RL and 501st.
