    No mention of vendors?
    Any reasoning for that?

      Hi Debbie,
      It was simply an oversight- I will find out when Vendors will be exhibiting and add that information to the website.

    🖖🏽Set you phasers for “fun” and beam on down to Riverside and let the “trek” begin. 🖖🏽 wish we could bring in a cast member or an extra, there are a ton of them.
