Kickoff in The ParkThis years festival will run all day Friday and last into the night with a concert in the park. Come join us for music under the stars. We will have flowers, bands, food and fun. It is the best dollar ($1 Admission fee) you will spend all year. It has always been the tradition to gather on Friday evening to share a bite to eat, shake our hips and to celebrate our beloved festival with our family, friends and community. It is a sneak peek of what a wonderful weekend we have in store for you. Our vendorswill participate by opening their booths early in the day for your shopping pleasure. We welcome one and all to enjoy the park after our winter visitors have left and before our warm winds settle in for the summer.
