CANTON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - It was Family Day Saturday at the Nissan plant in Canton where employees enjoyed a carnival atmosphere.

The automaker celebrated the annual event with a company picnic and fair for workers.

Between 5,000 and 6,000 workers came together for a day of rides, food, live music and fun. There was also a special treat - a big unveiling.

The 2015 Nissan Murano was revealed to the public and will soon be rolling off the Canton assembly line.

"It speaks a lot to the people here, our employees. The core of our facility is our employees and we're so excited to be given the new vehicle to produce. And we're really excited that we have this Murano that's gonna be all over the world, and it's made right here in Canton Mississippi," said Camille Young Manager of Government Relations at Nissan Canton.

The new mid sized crossover SUV is one of 10 vehicles produced in Canton.

It should be coming to a showroom near you in late 2014.
