Cool Science Kid's Mini Fruitcake Toss 

It's the 5th Annual Cool Science Kid's Mini Fruitcake Toss. Inspired by the famous Manitou Springs Great Fruitcake Toss - think Punkin' Chunkin', but with fruitcakes- tiny fruitcakes, tiny catapults, lots of kids and LOTS of fun! 

Note: the format will be a little different than we've done in past years.  Instead of all kids competing at a scheduled time, you can drop in anytime between 10 and 3 to build and decorate your catapult, practice flinging all you want, then when you're ready compete for distance, accuracy and best decorated.  We'll record and post your results on our scoreboard (and our Facebook event page) and announce the winners at the end of the day.  Winners can stop by Imagination Celebration anytime after that to claim their prizes.  

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