The public is encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets, and relax on the front lawn of the Fitz. Tethered balloon rides will be offered for $2.00 per person from 6:00 p.m. until 7:45 p.m. (Children 3 years of age and younger ride free.) The family-friendly events include a live DJ, jugglers, a painting performance, a dance contest, and a hotdog-eating contest.
