The formal welcome takes place on the main stage at 5:30 p.m., followed by a performance by Curtis Braun, “The Science Guy.” Opening ceremonies, and the cake cutting, take place at 6 p.m. sharp. Live performances from Wills Jams, Shan E Punjab Arts Club and the March Hare Band then take the stage.

The evening culminates in the fireworks at 10 p.m.
