"We've got a hands-on-only CPR demonstration, so for those folks that want to learn how to do CPR, have them come out and we're going to help them," said Jim Wright. "We've got a tribute area for the honor wall for those survivors as well."

"We also got a kids section, so we can't forget the kids. We've got a scavenger hunt for the kids around Victory Field, which will be so fun. And then we have a photo station and some vendor booths as well," Wright added.
