We will have critters from the Blue Ridge Outdoor Education Center. We will have all kinds of booths on healthy foods and healthy snacks. We are having a kids’ parade that will start somewhere in the area of 11 a.m. and we will have a small fun run this year. That is new where kids can walk or run a certain area in our parking lot.”
