2015 Festival of the Giant
The Festival was very successful and provided a fun-filled day for campers and those who came for the day to take part in the events and enjoy the barbecue lunch. We want to thank the Park staff, J.D.Barnes, and all the volunteers (especially Elisabeth, Finn, Jessica M, Nicole, Jessica B, Leanna, Diane and Marian) for helping our Friends organization host the Festival. And a huge thanks to all of you who came to enjoy the day.
