"We have about 80 arts and crafts vendors and about 150 vendors total so we are going to have a ton of arts and crafts so make sure to bring your checkbook with you, we are also going to have live entertainment," Mayor Ellen Dixon said.

This year's musical theme is the blues. The Alabama Blues Project, Soul Connection and Big Swamp Blues Band will all take the stage to entertain the crowds.

Check out the city's Facebook page first thing Saturday morning for weather updates.

This year, an imagination station for kids will be set up, with racing pigs from North Carolina.

Bounce houses, a huge sand box, face painting; a petting zoo, horse rides and tons of other fun activities will be available for the kids.
