So when you get there, just turn us on, crank it up and enjoy as we celebrate the city's 150th anniversary. How about that? Patriotic music right here as the fireworks are going off, or it's gonna be nice. And it looks like the weather is going to cooperate, too. So maybe I'll see you out there Sunday night.
