There will be refreshments, food (huggable pizza and royally delectable ice cream for Hug Machine and Happy As Kingsattendees, respectively) as well as themed activities for our guests on opening night, so visitors are urged to arrive promptly at 7pm or a little bit earlier in order to enjoy the full itinerary of event highlights.
