It's the first one since 2019 and it's set to go this weekend. One of the only free festivals in the area happens Friday night and Saturday at Rotary Republic Park.

Volunteers are still needed and if you have a couple of hours to give Saturday afternoon, they would love to hear from you. You can get all the information you need here. You can also email them at

Free fries, free entertainment with the likes of the Biivers Band and Hicktown, a kid zone, classic car show along with many vendors are just some of this year's highlights.
