Other notable products included stainless steel double-walled growlers from Drink Tanks, and a neat multipurpose anodized aluminum LED flashlight system from VSSL Gear. Inside each flashlight were survival kits such as a first aid kit, a supplies kit, and/or most importantly, a flask with two shot glasses. In addition to the products, vendors had swag and other freebies for event visitors. “It’s like a giant family that’s welcomed me home that’s never met me before,” says Caitlin Bridger, a first-time visitor to the event. “I am just loving it here. Everybody’s so happy and welcoming.”
