What do I need to know about this event?

This annual event is part of the fabric of "community" promoted by First Flight for its start up entrepreneurs, their teams and families and the greater innovation ecosystem of our area. A handful of hearty souls stay up all night to roast the pig the old fashioned way and to offer a feast, great music and good conversation. Yes, vegetarians are covered!
