“This year we were able to provide a cake walk, caricature artist, professional face painting, a children’s museum, bingo station and other activities for the kids," said Nathalie Rider, the event's coordinator. "We couldn’t have asked for better circumstances between the increase in attendance, the weather, and the improved entertainment options we had this year."

Rider also said the event saw record high attendance with over 275 in attendance.
