Heroes On Site!

We love imagination and will have some of our favorite storybook superheroes on site, but we all know that real life heroes make a difference every single day. We’re proud to be hosting the Maplewood Police, Fire and Ambulance Team at this event. Your kids can get up close and personal with the men and women that save lives in our own backyards.

**Please note that real heroes do have to respond to real life emergencies. In the event of an emergency in the area, we understand that this crew has work to do and may have to leave early.

In addition to these real life heroes, we’ll have imaginary and playful friends joining us as well. Spiderman and Wonder Woman from Party Crasher People and Batman and Superman from Awesome for Hire will be with us for the entire event, and the Minnesota Twins are sending T.C. Bear for a special appearance as well.
