There’ll be a cocktail hour that kicks off at 7, featuring moonshine sno-cones, hors d’oeuvres, live music in the main floor bar room and line dancing instruction in the ballroom.

The party switches into full gear starting at 8:30. There will be a cash bar and fun decorations and props for photo ops.
