We’ll have a lot of activities for children to participate in. Along with all the great food vendors from Clarksville, it should be really fun… I’m actually more excited for a lot of the cultural performances.”

“I just want to invite everyone. It’s once a year. We just want to share our history, culture and traditions, so please join us,” added Mattingly.
