There will be a special opening ceremony and presentation of the colors at 11am in front of the Macy’s store.  Former "The Voice" contestant Tess Boyer will sing, and the Granite City and East St. Louis Community Bands will play.  There will also be more than two dozen vendors on the lower level between Macy’s and the kids area near JC Penny.
