At this year’s event, you will find over 100 vendors offering a variety of products for sale. Multiple food vendors will be on site and the popular BBQ cook-off is always a hit!
An all-day job fair, a first responders’ corridor, a car show and hot air balloon rides (weather permitting) on Saturday from 4:00-9:00 p.m are just a few of the scheduled activities. In addition, a city-wide garage sale is set to take place throughout the duration of the event.
