The cost is $10 per child for the first two children in the family and $5 per child after that. Concessions will be available but are not included in the cost.

Parents need not be present but can stay if they choose. No child will be allowed to leave until picked up by a parent or guardian. A first responder will be present.

The registration form can be downloaded and filled out in advance. Preregister for quick drop off, but walk-ins are welcome.

Parents whose children attend will receive a Stout Ale House coupon , good for Dec. 8 only. The coupon will be available when children are dropped off.

The event is sponsored by the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. For more information, contact Emma Sapiro, UW-Stout Athletics, at 715-232-2173 or
