Pennypickle's birthday bash!!

Saturday, March 3; All Sessions

​The Professor has finally decided to unveil his rare and unique car during the Temecula Rod Run but even more exciting than that, he's giving you a chance to play with lots of vehicle-related experiments and activities!

This event will be held in our outside fun area and will NOT include admission to the Workshop.

Uh... dads will have to be accompanied by a kid if they want to play with the cars. LOL.

In case of rain, the Playing With Cars event will be moved inside and the admission fee will change. (We'll cross that bridge when - and if - it comes to that. Ha ha!)
