Nearly 2,700 Meals Served at Spaghetti Day in Cape Girardeau

It is all hands on deck the day of the event, and City staff and foundation volunteers prepare year round for this community favorite.

  • Improvements to Capaha Field
  • PlayMo
  • Inflatables for youth birthday parties and events
  • New slide at Central Pool
  • Special event enhancements such as tents, logo table cloths, banners, and more
