The Celiac Awareness Tour travels across the country to promote awareness of celiac disease and energize enthusiasm for gluten-free living. Each stop features presenters that range from medical experts who have studied celiac disease to vendors of gluten-free goods. Chefs' demonstrations exhibit recipes that don't contain gluten or Cracker Jacks prizes. Guests can also flit from booth to booth sampling gluten-free items from both local and national manufacturers and merchants, such as Rudi's Gluten Free Bakery, Natural Nectar, Feel Good Foods, and Redwood Hill Farms.
Field of Dreams Drive-In Theater offers communal, car-friendly film gazing as well as prefeature entertainment. At the Liberty Center location, around 250 vehicles sidle up next to each other to take in double features rain or shine, and the newly renovated Tiffin location can accommodate up to 500 sedans, stretch station wagons, and highway-ready riding lawnmowers. The flickering glow of Hollywood blockbusters joins forces with the twinkling stars overhead to illuminate clear, cloudless nights, helping to direct hungry movie goers to and from the full-service concession stand, and light the way for made-to-order pizzas delivered straight to each car’s drivers side door.
In addition to its first-run films, Field of Dreams features free, family-friendly games including corn hole toss, ladder golf, and putt-putt golf. Four-legged family members can also watch from the safety of a leash or their very own car seat, and portable coolers and grills are permitted on the grounds with the purchase of a $4 outside-food permit.
The 2011 Rock the Resort festival chutes fans through a two-day tunetopia of live rock 'n' roll paired with the watery fun of Clay's Park Resort and its adventure water park. Like Woodstock with even zippier ziplines, Rock the Resort offers a panoply of summertime activities complemented by ear-watering evening performances from an octet of popular artists. Headlining Friday night's jamboree, pop-punk pioneers New Found Glory break the waves at 8 p.m., followed at 10 p.m. by Third Eye Blind, the hit paraders behind "Semi-Charmed Life" and "Jumper." Saturday night marinates eardrums in even more dulcet notes, with Canadian bandoliers Three Days Grace polishing off the festival at 10 p.m. with a set of sandcastle-shaking shanties ready to be savored like fine wine from a scrimshaw flagon.
