SATURDAY & SUNDAY “SPECIAL GUESTS” MEET & GREET” TO BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY! FREE WITH PAID ADMISSION!*

*How to “Meet &  Greet” our “Special Guests? To “Meet & Greet” our special guests, all you need to do is ask for a free “Meet & Greet Ticket” when you enter the expo, and present your prepaid admission ticket, or ask expo staff for it when you purchase your admission ticket at the door. The “Meet & Greet” tickets are free, but because the “Special Guests” can’t stay in the “Meet & Greet Zone” for several hours in a row (even they need a break!), they are available at three (3) times throughout the day, on both Saturday and on Sunday. The times available will be listed below shortly. Please note: there are limited number of “Meet & Greet” tickets available for each appearance, and are given out free, on a first-come, first-served basis. Just your child needs a “Meet & Greet” ticket – parents do not need a “Meet & Greet” ticket when entering the “Meet & Greet” line inside the expo with their child. You can also see the “meet & greet” zone when they visit with guests.
