The event is open to the public and includes dinner, a cash bar, live music and a silent auction. The fun continues Saturday with the Festival in the Park featuring over 100 arts and craft vendors, an antique car show, a large play area for children with several inflatables, the always popular Arab Choo Choo, festival food and more.
