Mayor Ed Bolt put the callout on Facebook for the 6 p.m. event at Rose Garden Park at the corner of Broadway and Franklin. Lalo's Taco Chop and Grill sold food and drinks, there were corn hole games and bubbles for the kids to play with, and the Shawnee High School Jazz Band performed for the get together.
