- Participate in our 90 Year Scavenger Hunt and search the park for clues as you learn about the nine decades of the Roundhouse’s life

- Send a “Happy Birthday” message to the Roundhouse in our video booth.

- Ride our miniature train around Roundhouse Park and try to imagine what the area looked like 90 years ago

- Food truck

- Birthday cake, while supplies last
