  3. Indicate below the times you are available to help. The more times you are available, the more chances you have of getting your preferred job. Please note: we do our best to accommodate you giving preference to time over job choice. Please understand that we are all volunteers and there are critical jobs & times that must be priority filled. While we will do our best to place you in a volunteer job we cannot guarantee that we will be able to find a suitable position.
    This year, the festival is at the beginning of school vacation. That means, we cannot get in to the school before 3:00 PM on Friday. There are still a few volunteer setup slots before the festival opens.
