Back at Hampton Park. After last year's change of venue to Brittlebank Park and the Joe, this year's Piccolo finale is back in beautiful Hampton Park. Apparently people missed bringing their picnics and lawn chairs and hanging out by the duck pond.
Motown madness! The theme is Motown, with cover band Motown Madness playing classic hits made famous by Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, the Four Tops, and more. Throughout the day, there will also be African drumming, performances from DanceFX and Carolina Studios students, and an address from Mayor Joe Riley.
What? No fireworks? It's true. The park's avian inhabitants aren't big fans of explosions, so this year's event will not include fireworks. If you're looking for those, head to Middleton Place on Sunday.
