Mayor DeMaria stated, “This is a day that you don’t want to miss. Last year’s event, especially the fireworks were spectacular. I am glad we were able to bring this tradition back to our community. As Mayor, it has always been important for me to make sure that my administration offers a variety of programs, events, and opportunities for our residents and I greatly appreciate that so many people come out to enjoy these programs.”
In the afternoon, residents are invited to Glendale Park for a BBQ, musical entertainment from various local bands and activities for family fun, including face painting, balloon twisting, a petting zoo, pony rides, and other attractions.
