"It's certainly been a long year, so we're thankful to be able to bring these events back to our community," said Lutz.

Lt. Leighann Stroud of Madisonville, is warning people of a possible ticket scam.

"When the city posted about the events, there were some people who always pop up that like to try to scam people and just said hey I cant go, I have some free tickets, if you want to buy them direct message me and you can get those," said Stroud.

Despite the attempt to capitalize off the event, there have not been any reports of the scam working.

"The parking is free, the concert is free, there's nothing for you to pay for other than some food and some beverages." said Stroud.

Aside from the possible scam, Lutz is looking forward to the community enjoying a fun filled weekend.

"Oh I'm very excited, I'm thrilled. We've been waiting, we've tried to come up with some different events during COVID that we were able to provide for our community but this is one we've been waiting for," said Lutz.

Held on July 2 through July 4, Lutz is expecting a big turnout.

With this being the first major event since the pandemic, Lutz wants people to know there's plenty of room to remain socially distanced.

"You can see already something's going on behind us, this has been months in the making though." said Lutz.

An event filled with local vendors food trucks and music, It's a fun holiday weekend to look forward to.
