The second day of the 125th Anniversary Celebration was held today throughout Grand Junction.

It began in downtown with the unveiling of a bronze statue. It's of Grand Junction's founder, George Crawford. The tribute to the town's father was created by sculptor Mark Wahlberg.

The Back to the Future celebration continued at Lincoln Park where it was a Youth Day. There were different activities like a bump in jump, band, a blow up slide and even a train that ran through the streets of the park.

Families came out to not just have fun but to celebrate Grand Junction's birthday.
