If You Build It, They Will Come

For years we have been asked to bring more things to do to Leander!  Well, I am excited to see the early response we have had from the community.  Our booths are selling quickly, our bands are raring to play for you, and the food selection is rapidly expanding.  The first year of any event is though, but we are seeing all great things.  We look forward to seeing you on May 16th!
