The opening ceremony and a karaoke contest will be Friday, May 17.

Activities on Saturday, May 18, include a breakfast at the fire hall, parade through the town, vendors and music — including American Idol finalist Christian Lopez — at Veterans Park, trolley rides and various activities at the library. 

A street dance will be held that evening, followed by fireworks from Master Displays. 

On Sunday, May 19, events include an outdoor community church service, vendors, music and a pie-eating contest.  

The committee is still accepting applications for vendors and parade participants.
