The community celebration with family events, music, and food begins at 6 p.m. The festivities are located on the front lawn of Capital University. Remember, due to block parties, several of the streets around Capital will be closed - if you can, try to walk or bike to the community celebration to help ease traffic congestion. Additionally, the Bexley Beat Bus will be providing free transportation throughout the evening to and from the Community Celebration and fireworks - to view the Beat Bus Route, click here.
