The first two hours of the event, from 9-11:00a.m. are designated as noise free hours for sensitive ears. After 11:00a.m. expect the air to be filled with plenty of beeps and sirens as the kids joyfully find out what happens when you press THAT button or flip THAT switch.
The forecast looks great for the event. It will be humid and mild when the event begins, and temperatures will be in the upper 70s. Expect partly cloudy skies and a nice warm up through the 80s during the event. Winds will be very light, and temperatures should climb into the mid to upper 80s by the end of the fun. There are good chances for storms, but they will most likely not fire up until after the event ends, in the later afternoon and early evening hours.
