Charlottesville is gearing up for a gala to celebrate the city's 250th birthday. The Celebrate!250 group is inviting the community to the big party at the John Paul Jones Arena Sunday night starting at 5:30.

The grand gala will feature food and wine, dancing, and performances from local bands as well as disco superstars Kool and the Gang. Organizers want the gala to be an event where everyone can have some fun.

Ric Barrick of Celebrate!250 Said, "It's also an opportunity for the community to come together - the county, the city, and the university - and celebrate our 250th and get with their fellow neighbors in the community to talk about why it's such a great place to live."

Tickets are still available at ticketmaster.com. Prices range from $10 to $30, tickets to the VIP reception will run you $150. You can also buy tickets tomorrow at the JPJ Box Office.
