From the organizer:

Please join us on August 13 for a fun-filled day as we celebrate America’s 241st birthday. Children and families love this outdoor event and this year we are extending our games for children and adults including face painting and coloring, bouncing castle, fun games and contests.

We also welcome back the popular Vietnam National Circus with acts that will amaze people of all ages – including the largest snake you’ve ever seen! Doors open at 4:00pm, activities and games start at 4:15pm, and the event will last long into the evening. Rain or shine, this event proceeds as planned.

Music fans will be treated to live music by the Hi Jinks Band’s performances and some classic House music from Camelia Lounge’s DJ. And we have some great prizes for the winners of our 8th annual watermelon eating contest, so be sure to participate and show-off those eating skills you have been working hard at perfecting!

Get the camera on your smartphone ready because the US Embassy Marine Security Guard Detachment will be Marching the Colors and Harley-Davidson motorcycles will be at the site for you to take photos with.
