Vote for your favorite: Each person will receive a ticket to vote for their favorite creation. Voting takes place at the end of the weekend by count and will be announced online.
We’ve also created some really fun island scavenger hunting for those who like a little squatch in their experience. You’ll be able to brag about seeing the big foot that hide amoungst the trees and pathways.
