Come out to the Chaffee Crossing Historic District and bring the whole family to enjoy live music, FREE buzz cuts in the Barbershop Museum, helicopter rides, bounce arounds, games, contests and more!
Come hungry because we'll have lots of BBQ sandwiches, carnival food, and egg rolls to satisfy every appetite. We're also bringing back the beer garden (must be 21 and have a valid ID) along with sodas and water.
Admission is FREE!

Of course all proceeds benefit the Chaffee Crossing Historic District but donations are appreciated. We've got lots of big plans to expand the Historic District, so we need
lots of community support. 

Don't forget to bring your lawn chair!
