Volunteer Information

Red, White and BOOM! would only be a Red, White & Whimper without our many volunteers! It takes a lot of people to pull off this fantastic, family-friendly feat, and we welcome all volunteers willing to help out for a few hours on the day of the event. In return, you get free admission and parking that day, free burgers/hot dogs and beverages, and the chance to meet lots of other fun, friendly people!
