“Passports” is an open house, allowing families to come and go depending on their personal schedules. The event is free and refreshments will be provided.

The event is designed for families to gain knowledge of cultures form all over the world.  This year, the booths will cover Guatemala, ancient Utah, ancient Greece, Polynesia and Africa.  Booths will include a brief educational background and a hands-on activity.  Each family member will be given a passport booklet that will be stamped at every booth after completing the activity.
