The primary contributing sponsor will be Avalon Garden City, which will sponsor the master of ceremonies to include music and entertainment. There will be plenty of activities for the kids.

There will be the traditional inflatable “bouncy” sponsored by SMPL Technologies, and the ever-popular money cube (sponsorship available).

The Garden City Department of Recreation and Parks will provide a face painter, always popular with the youngsters. Additionally, the young dancers from the Broadway Bound Dance Center of Garden City, entertaining spectators each year at the Belmont Festival in June, will return to perform. There will be great food along the way, and much more.
For 2012, the chamber will welcome vendors offering a variety of craft and
gift items. Adding to the festivities, the Garden City High School’s Homecoming Day Parade will step off from Seventh Street at noon.
