Friday, Oct. 17, 2014 in the MARC Pavilion (second floor) - 6:00pm
As a pre-event for our Parent & Family Day package, join us for a night filled with music, wine, appetizers, and art! With the help of an artist, participants will each paint their own unique Roary masterpiece. At the end of the night, attendees will see how creative they can get and be amazed with their final result just within two hours. There is no previous painting experience needed and we ensure a night of stress free fun and entertainment. Come and join us to channel your inner artist and show off your hidden talent by RSVPing at this link: Paint Nite has reached capacity and we are no longer accepting RSVPs for this event.
