KIDS ADVENTURE PASSPORT!

Our Kids’ Adventure Passport will help kids 12 and under explore games and age-appropriate activities throughout the event and take home prizes, swag, and deals for parents and kids at the end. Prizes this year include a kids climbing pass with gear at Wild Walls or a half price kids’ Hiawatha Scenic Bike Trail pass (ages 5-12) while they last, a Kate’s Real Food bar, plus other fun prizes! Passport activities include hands-on learning about wildlife, nerf archery, Strider and pedal and BMX bike demos, arts and crafts, marshmallow roasting, disc golf, cornhole and other games, activities at exhibitor booths, and more!

 

How it works: To participate, kids 12 and under need to pick up their Passport at the Out There Outdoors booth at the entrance to the Great Outdoors & Bike Expo. Once in hand, follow the instructions and find and try each of the activities highlighted in the passport and collect stamps from each activity station/exhibitor. Once all of the necessary stamps are collected, return to the Out There Outdoors booth to collect your free Adventure Passport prizes while they last!
