Opening Family Social and Street Festival

Kick off the URSA conference by attending the opening family ice cream social on July 7th from 6:30 - 8:30 at the Richfield City Park.  This event is free for all conference attendees and their families. Besides good company and live music, come enjoy some ice cream and activities for the kids. Make sure you pick up wristbands for your entire family during registration.  Wristbands will be required for free ice cream, face painting, bounce houses, popcorn, and the mechanical bull. The Shirt Shop will also be present for "on demand" screen printing- you select your shirt color, size and educational saying, and get it screen-printed on the spot.  Join your friends and colleagues for this annual social.  It's always a great time to relax, catch-up with old acquaintances, and form new networks.  Providing live entertainment will be Folk Singer Peter Breinholt.

In conjunction with the URSA opening social, “We Are Social” will be hosting a Street Festival at the City Park that evening from 5:00 - 9:00.  Local bands will be performing, and you can expect other vendors, activities, and food trucks to be there that night as well.  These additional activities/vendors will be at cost to you.
