The cake/bake walk will have pies and cakes donated by Back Home restaurant, Barbara Proffitt, and City staff. The event is free to the public and there will be pony rides and face painting available for the kids. Food vendors will be selling food items such as barbeque, chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs, pork sandwiches, lemonade, and ice cream.


New this year, Skydive KY Team will perform at 5:00 and 7:00 pm. The Jason Flood Airshow will commence at 6:00 and 8:00 pm and is sponsored in part by Elizabethtown Flying Service. This is the first airshow in Elizabethtown in over a decade. The National Anthem will be sung by Fort Knox Federal Credit Union’s very own Heidi Baldwin.
