About the Underwear:
This is the 5th annual fundraising event benefting UNDERWEARNESS. UNDERWEARNESS is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization providing new underwear to children in need. We're helping children...one pair at a time.
Participants are strongly encouraged to bring packages of new children's underwear for chances to win prizes. Our goal is to collect 5000 pairs of underwear at the park. That's a lot of underwear to see piled up!
We do encourage costumes and have attracted many superheros to this event in the past. If you choose to incorporate underwear into your costume, please keep in mind this is a family-friendly event!
