KIDZ ZONE: The front gravel lot at Wicked Tuna will feature activities just for children, but we need your help. If you are a kid-friendly vendor, contact us ASAP so we can make sure everyone will fit space wise and that we don’t double dip; we accidentally had 2 face painters one year, for example. Help us dial this in and make it a part of our events moving forward.
