Be A Kid Again

Adults, it’s your turn to play! Reconnect with your inner kid in a night out in Hasbro’s Our Big Backyard. Build forts and castles with colorful fabric, run through the sprinklers, play in a treehouse, crawl through tunnels, balance on branches, play in the mud and more all while enjoying live music from local classic rock band Farm Dog.
