Get up close and personal with an antique fire engine – a 1949 Mack Engine. Learn more about supporting student success on the BCPS Parentmobile. See how good you are with hula hoops and jump ropes. Make cool paper rockets. Buy a delicious lunch from Flat Chance, Jimmy’s Famous Seafood, Maui Wowi Hawaiian Smoothies, or Pablo’s Toc O’s food trucks.
