All proceeds (including parking, admission and food) from the Oct. 6 opening day only will benefit Back the Blue LLC— a registered 501c3 with a mission to be “on the ready” for first responders in Osceola County. Back the Blue LLC intends to use proceeds from Hastings Ranch’s opening day for direct financial assistance for Osceola County’s first responders, scholarships funds for first responders’ families, and to allocate funds to a first responder in the event of injury on the job to help compensate them for the portion of income workers comp and other insurances may not pay.  

Admission is $11 for adults ages 13 and up, $8.50 for children ages 3-12, and free for children ages 2 and under.
