    This looks really fun! I have a 3.5 year old who I would love to bring Saturday morning for the reduced-fare 10-12 session. The link on the website was out for purchasing bracelets ahead of time, can I just show up on Saturday morning? It also lists that the younger kid bracelet was for three of the rides, anyone know if that includes the bouncy house? My kid would be so sad if we showed up but he was too young or for another reason could not go in the bouncy house – they are his fav. Also, I did not see listed how much the entry or bracelet was? Anyone know? Thanks! I look forward to supporting this event!

    Here is the link for WestFest information: http://westfest.holyrosaryws.org/

    It looks like the bouncy house is included. Here is the link to the order form for advance orders (looks like the online link is broken): http://www.holyrosaryws.org/fce/14/attachments/2014-08-13/Westfest.pdf

    In a nutshell, advance Toddler Time wristbands are $10, day of purchase $15. Yes, you can buy them at WestFest Saturday morning.

    I will notify the school that the online link is broken; hopefully it gets fixed soon. Thanks for your interest in WestFest – it is fantastically fun!

    Lina Rose, the online link isn’t broken, it’s been disabled (unfortunately the pre-sale period is over this close to the event). However, you absolutely can come by and purchase a band onsite–it will be $15 for the 2 hour Toddler Time. Otherwise the rides are 1-2 tickets for each use (tickets are $1 each). A few turns makes it worth it! The bouncy house IS included for exclusive access, along with one side each of the slide and the obstacle course. We will also have a clown with balloon animals, music, dance instruction and a magician to round it all up! Looking forward to sharing the carnival with you!

    Thanks! He is going to FREAK out (in a good way) when he sees the bouncy house! Can’t wait to hear his happy squeals!
