There was more than a little something for everyone, with music from a local DJ and a fireworks show to end the night.

“This is my first year so I really didn’t know what to expect,” Park director Ray Keenum told us. “But this is a bigger turnout than we expected.”

The turnout, with over 100 children enjoying water slides and bounce houses, was a great sign of the spirit of community Falkner is trying to build.

If the first year is any indication, that tradition is going to grow.
