Tags Tag the event with any relevant tags. Tags help sort and classify events so that they can be directed to the proper location on your web site.

Newly uploaded images will be added to the image library and attached to this event. Alternatively, you may attach an existing gallery to this event by clicking “Use an existing gallery”. (See “Attaching an image to an event” for more information.)
