Please sign up using the “ticket” link to make sure your barrel is reserved. If you just want to attend the event, without building a barrel, you are more than welcome! This event is outdoors. Please dress accordingly. This is event is free but donations are always welcome at www.savebarnegatbay.org/donate/
