The celebration will include music by the Texas Unlimited Band and strolling entertainers such as stilt walkers and jugglers and a variety of children's activities. Festivities conclude with a 20-minute fireworks display.
"There will also be inflatable moonwalks and slides for the kids, craft vendors and face painting," Capers said.
