City crews and event volunteers were getting ready for the busy weekend on Celebration Plaza. The weekend kicks off on Friday night at 5pm with a Cinco de Mayo celebration hosted by the Celebration Association. A quick turnaround tomorrow morning will have volunteers and city workers busy with setting up the vendors for the Reds, Whites, and Brews festival which will start at 2pm and run until 7pm. Wine and beer vendors will offer their products and live musical entertainment will also be enjoyed. Then yet another turnaround for a Sunday morning event starting at 11am. The Enchanted Bride Festival will host vendors for everything a bride would need to host the perfect wedding and reception. Florists, photographers, rental vendors, and more will display their offerings around the plaza until 5pm.
In addition to the events on the plaza, other events going on nearby include the Community Players production of “Dearly Departed” with shows at 7pm on Friday and Saturday, as well as another performance on Sunday at 2pm.
