The public is invited to attend and the trail’s name will be unveiled and major donors to the project will be acknowledged. Local, county and state dignitaries will be present. Following the ceremony everyone will have the opportunity to walk any portion of the trail.
Following the ceremony the the Southern Smoke Barbecue truck will be on the north end of The Square to sell plates. Later in the evening the Combo Kings will present a concert. The concert will be outside weather permitting.
