This year’s main event will be the MEGA Brain, a larger-than-life, inflatable interactive exhibit of the human brain. Visitors will have the chance to learn how the brain works from the inside out and what can happen when the brain is injured.  This is a wonderful educational tool for teachers, healthcare professionals, parents, children or anyone that wants to know how the brain works.

Healthcare professionals will also be available to answer questions about brain injury and resources in our community.

We will also be offering fleece mermaid tails for sale.  These one-of-a-kind items, crafted by TBI survivors, can be worn for Halloween or used to keep warm while relaxing at home as the evenings turn cooler.

Volunteers and donations are needed for the event.  To register online as a volunteer, please click here.

Admission to the event is free.  Proceeds from the event benefit the Traumatic Brain Injury Resource Center and will help to support the launch of pediatric programming.  The event take place under a tent, rain or shine.
