80’s vs 90’s

This year’s theme will take us back to a time not so long ago that we can all remember well the 80’s & 90’s. With special guests like Voice Actor: Gregg Berger we will be able to relive
some of our favorites such as; Garfield and Friends, Winnie the Pooh, and Transformers. With so many great aspects of the 80’s and 90’s making a comeback in this day and age it’s fun to celebrate
and remember the things we know and love.
