The event will also include an appearance by the mascot from Chick-fil-A, balloons, a clown and face painter, and dance performances featuring dancers from The Dance Factory studio. In addition, local businesses have donated prizes for a raffle. Nearby restaurants such as Cold Stone Creamery and Ciao Bella Ristorante will also be on hand to provide food.
