Food, Music & Fireworks

Have fun with live entertainment featuring national headliner Thompson Square, food vendors, a local Microbrew Garden, a car show, and free kids’ activities.

National Headliner: Thompson Square

Thompson Square isn't a real place, exactly. It's the musical territory staked out by the husband-and-wife duo of Keifer and Shawna Thompson, an exciting and unpredictable area where country meets rock, rough meets smooth and one vagabond heart finds a harmonious common ground with another. It's the sweet destination where two journeys end and another one begins. "It's the place where we create our thing, a little fantasyland where we live," Keifer says.

And now the rest of us get to discover that magical place, starting with the duo's new self-titled debut album. Fans began truly getting to know their way around Thompson Square with the release of the infectious radio smash "Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not," a fitting introduction to the Thompsons' natural chemistry and spirit of buoyant romance. Other hit singles include "If I Didn't Have You," and "Everything I Shouldn't Be Thinking About."
