I'm so disappointed that we will miss this! We have been looking forward to it ever since we first heard of it but we are still going to be out of town then. But I hope all who attend will enjoy it and share those pics on Patch so we can see all the fun that I am sure it will be.

That's a bummer, Michelle! Make sure to check back for photos on Patch. With the amount of planning it took to put on the event, I'm pretty sure GHPD is trying to make this an annual event in the community.
