The event also includes a patriotic tribute with the reading of the Declaration of Independence by Worthington high school students and a salute to the anniversary of the Civil War with reenactors, including an Abraham Lincoln.

Food and beverages will be available for purchase. Donations of food items will also be accepted for the Worthington Food Pantry and Resource Center.

The dedication of BriHi Square, Historic Dublin's new mixed-use development, is slated for 6 p.m. Thursday, July 7.

Mezzo, an Italian restaurant, is set to open in a two-story space soon and will host a fundraiser for the Dublin Counseling Center after the dedication from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
