The family friendly event has themes for each night.

Thursday's theme is tough enough to wear pink. The organizers are asking the public to wear pink in support of breast cancer research, recovery and remission. 

Friday is back the blue night to support law enforcement, military service members and first responders. 

On Saturday, the organizers are asking rodeo goers to wear cowboy and cowgirl style clothing to celebrate rodeo western heritage.
