    • Notes: We didn't end up needing the pony racing in the lobby at all or any kind of set-up for the balloons - the kids were happy to just chase them and whack them (mostly with their horses!). I could have used some samples for the glitter rings ahead of time. A lot of people used the smaller masks on their horses, which was cute.
