People of all ages can enjoy carnival rides that include a carousel and swings, the Leland Express Train, lots of lawn games, and more. Local organizations will have booths with interactive activities and information. A dazzling fireworks display will cap off the evening.

Food trucks will be on site. Attendees are welcome to bring their own coolers and set up a picnic on the lawn, but pets are not allowed.

“Leland has seen incredible growth over the last 33 years that has brought so many wonderful people and opportunities to our Town,” Mayor Brenda Bozeman said. “We’re grateful for the founders who laid the foundation for where we are today and look forward to seeing where we are 33 years from now!”
