There will be entertainment on stage, with Almost Famous beginning at 10 a.m., and playing a 45-minute set.

That will be followed by brief civic ceremonies to officially mark the occasion at 10:45 a.m.

Then from 10:15-10:45 a.m., there will be a dog show with prizes for best dressed, biggest dog, smallest dog and best trick.
