We enjoyed our day, and the opportunity to witness an event that started from humble beginnings that’s grown into something that benefits the community, and the efforts to create a long lasting tradition. We’ll see you next year!

A simple reminder as to our freedom of enjoying a beautiful day, among good friends, and family.
