DuPont is hosting a military appreciation celebration this weekend.

It’s called Operation We Love Our Military, and it’s running tonight and Saturday.

The cause for the party?

"The military and their families live in and around the community and help to keep local businesses in operation," according to a press release. "Needless to say, the businesses of DuPont are very appreciative for their military neighbors and their families."

The celebration begins tonight at Ross Plaza with a hot dog barbecue and a screening of "E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial" at dusk, or about 8:45 p.m.

On Saturday, a pancake breakfast from 8-11 a.m. kicks things off. Gifts will be raffled off, and there’s a bounce house and face painting for the kids. Farrelli’s Wood Fire Pizza is hosting a music stage and beer garden in its parking lot beginning at 11 a.m. Admission is free.
