Take your selfies, group photos, family photos etc. with your phone or camera at our Photo Booth during the Mega Event. We will have a background and props that you may use. Have fun and make some memories to treasure. The actual location of this activity will depend on weather conditions on the day of the event.
& Pathtag
map location 09
We all have special trackables we like to share with others. This year we are providing an unmanned table to display yours. So bring your trackables and earn the mileage through others Discovering them. A printed list of your coins and trackables to share with attendees would be a good idea.
Pathtag exchange - Check at the location for a sign specifying specific gathering times for cachers to get together to trade pathtags
Please do not enter trackables into the event as in past years. And stay at the table while they are on display. If you wish to give a trackable to someone, the receiving cacher should log the trackable into their inventory by logging a "grab it from current holder" on the trackable's page; be sure to identify this Mega Event as the location.
