Cool Science Kid's Mini Fruitcake Toss 

Inspired by the famous Manitou Springs Great Fruitcake Toss (sadly cancelled in 2014 after 22 years), have no fear- the 3rd Annual Cool Science Kid's Mini Fruitcake Toss is here!  Think Punkin' Chunkin', but with fruitcakes- tiny fruitcakes, tiny catapults, lots of kids and LOTS of fun! 

FREE for all kids!  Pre-registration strongly suggested (button below).

Presented by Cool Science & Imagination Celebration
