Mayor's Summertime Celebration 630

Time to celebrate with Mayor Mike Clay! Grab the family, and join us for our second annual Mayor’s Summertime Celebration. This free event is fun for the whole family – come for the BBQ, and stay for a ride down the 20’ slide. We’ll have balloon animals, face painting, and freezies for all. Here’s the plan:

1pm-4pm: Family BBQ

1pm-8pm: LOTS of entertainment!
