Featuring Three Stages of Live Entertainment!
FIREWORKS at 9:00 PM
Pocket Change was formed to show that old school live entertainment was far more enjoyable than lip syncing track acts that were fast becoming the norm. The band always dresses to impress and delivers high energy musical arrangements of your favorite Motown, Stax, Philly Soul, Blues, Reggae, and Classic Rock catalogs. So dance and sing along or just sit back relax and enjoy “THE SHOW” as we perform the sound track of your life.
13th Army Band – Florida National Guard
The citizen-soldiers of The 13th Army Band, Florida National Guard has been serving the State of Florida, our nation, and our local communities since 1906. Today’s band features teachers, cops, students, nurses and a myriad of professions and interests working together to make great music.

The musicians also provide support for military funeral honors demonstrating the last full measure of respect to fallen veterans. Whatever the occasion, Florida’s military musicians are here to support the modern warrior, future soldiers, veterans and the American public.

Passionately performed and powerfully personal, Jacquie Lee’s “BROKEN ONES” immediately affirms the 17-year-old New Jersey native as an exceptional singer/songwriter with a singular voice and limitless future
Chemradery. It’s not a word in the English dictionary, but it might very well make it there if this band has anything to say about it. Led by vocalist Gregory Scot Dyer, and guitarist Ivan Alexander, Chemradery came about when two innovative minds merged their passion for music together, to create a sound that would not only inspire, but leave a lasting a impression; on themselves and the listener. Melodic verses and choruses with tones of Pop, Rock and Soul, simplistic; yet memorable lyrics about the positives and negatives of everyday life, and tasteful instrumentation that tie it all together. That is Chemradery. The fellowship, interaction, and common bond of everyday people, whose sole purpose is to tell a story through their music; a story that you can’t stop reading. That is Chemradery.

The Chalk Guys
The Chalk Guys, Hector Diaz and Ken Mullen, create custom 3D and traditional 2D chalk art for special events. First introduced to street painting through the Lake Worth Street Painting Festival, in Florida, Hector was hooked from the start. He quickly paired with lifelong friend Ken, to recreate a William Waterhouse painting, which would soon become the first of many collaborations. Eventually, the Chalk Guys started to create larger pieces that eventually developed into the 3D style they are known for today. In the past few years, having officially dubbed themselves the “Chalk Guys,” they have shared their 3D street paintings all over the United States. For these chalk guys, street painting is about more than just an image on a street. It’s about the process, the crowd interaction, and the great friendships they have forged along the way.
5:30 p.m. Puppet Parade around the event site
6:00 & 7:45 p.m. Stage performances of Rip Van Winkle
Bits ‘N Pieces Puppet Theatre presents their original musical adaptation of Washington Irving’s classic, Rip Van Winkle. This unique combination of talented puppeteers and actors brings a new perspective to the tale. Nine-foot-tall puppets take Irving’s great adventure to new heights with singing, dancing and, yes, even bowling with the boys of the Catskill Mountains! While some men work for a better tomorrow, Rip Van Winkle is easily distracted by the lure of having fun today. He learns a difficult lesson that by sleeping his life away, his dreams slip away too. His life has passed him by. It’s classic literature at its best!
