Dad's can come in with a son or daughter and get a passport, all they need to do is complete 4 out of 12 challenges and put their ballot into the ballot box and they are put into a contest to win a Napoleon BBQ, sponsored by Stubbe's Brand Source. We also have Beach Boys tribute concert tickets, Blue Jays tickets and a camping excursion."
