2. Want to skip the line and be first to meet the characters? All you need to do is volunteer for the event! You can bring your kids and help Discovery Green with the event. This gets you a fast pass to meet the characters.
On average, four volunteers will be selected for each event and Discovery Green will coordinate the activities. If you are interested this, email me at Jill @ BigKidSmallCity .com!
