"We worked with him and went back and forth and he helped us get some food trucks organized in quick fashion," Moore said. "He has done a really good job with his food truck and has gone about a year now and is from the East Alton area. We are trying to keep it local and local vendors."

High school art classes competed for designs of a T-shirt for the event. Gray Entertainment will be the DJ at the event and has done much for the Village of East Alton, organizers said.

There will be a bags competition, bounce house for kids and much more.

"This will encompass something from moms, dads, grandmas, grandpas and kids," Robin and Mike said.
