For the first time ever, this year’s event will include a Cigar Tent. Mayor Reina will be donating the first 50 cigars, but you are welcome to bring your own. A donation will be collected upon entering the tent which will go directly to the Jackson Women of Today Food Pantry to assist the families in need for the Holiday season. We ask that the cigar smoking remain within the tent, which will be located away from the crowd and other booths. Mayor Reina is looking forward to sharing a cigar with the residents.
