There will be live glassblowing demos on the outdoor stage in Centerway Square, as well as music during Rock The Park on both days,  activities for the whole family, and Fireworks on Saturday night.
Visitors can ravel quickly and easily between both The Corning Museum of Glass and Corning’s Historic Market Street by taking the free shuttle between both destinations.
