The Parade of Fashions will happen on Friday night at 9:00pm. We can't wait to see where you go with your imagination and creativity.

CropFest Layout Contest

A luau is all about celebration. So our theme for the the Layout Contest is "Celebrate." Share with us your cause for celebration. It could be a birthday, anniversary, graduation, or maybe just living in the moment! You may either create a layout at the Crop or bring one that you've completed at home.
