Attendees can purchase $1 tickets that can be redeemed for a slice of pizza from any vendor, potato chips provided by Ballreich’s, soda provided by S&S Variety Beverage or water provided by Hempy Water of Tiffin. Half of each ticket sold will go toward downtown revitalization, and AJ’s Heavenly Pizza has pledged to donate their profits from the event to Patchworks House.

There will also be a blind pizza tasting contest where contestants will attempt to identify the restaurant by taste. The event will kick-off with local celebrities taking the challenge, including Mayor Aaron Montz, Commissioner Holly Stacy and Reineke Marketing Manager Greg Dell.

A screening of blockbuster hit Zootopia will begin at dusk. Attendees are invited to bring their own chairs or blankets to enjoy the show. Tiffin Parks and Recreation is providing the movie equipment.
