Take a Stand Kick Off Celebration

April 1, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us on the Square to Take a Stand for Children.
  • Speaker’s Stand – Enjoy non-stop speakers and music, including representatives of CASA and the CACDC, and Denton Police Chief Lee Howell, as well as local favorites Matt Grigsby, Polly Maynard, George Neal & Tony Ferraro, Chris Welch & Kelly Evans, Joe Pat Hennen, the Trammell Group, the cast of Denton Community Theatre’s “Oliver,” and Polka king Carl Finch of Denton’s own Brave Combo.
  • Kick Stand – Watch as a combined kick line of area high school drill teams join together to kick off the fun.
  • Lemon Aid Stand – Help launch our social media challenge by making a donation and posting a photo sucking on a lemon or sit back as “Celebrity Suckers” pucker up for a selfie on stage.
  • Cake Stand – Take an old-fashioned cake walk and maybe even take home the cake (or at least a gift certificate for one)!
  • Ice Cream Stand – Sample Beth Marie’s Lemon Drop ice cream – the flavor of the day.
  • Artist Stand – Join your kids in creating lasting expressions of their support, thanks to the Greater Denton Arts Council.
  • Bike Stand – Check out some cool motorcycles and end the day of fun by watching the Bikers Against Child Abuse Parade around the Square.TAKE A STAND FOR CHILDREN
