KIDS               

Marietta StreetFest includes plenty of kid-sized fun! Kids Korner kicks off on Saturday with the Toy Box Trot followed by kid-friendly entertainment featuring Kim Armstrong and the Dance Party. There will be magic shows, juggling and more, and all of it is free to watch! Children’s Activity Row has been expanded with more inflatables and free interactive art stations and games, and there is something for the littlest attendees in the Tiny Tot Town with pint-size toys, a mini inflatable slide and cardboard houses. On Sunday, StreetFest welcomes the Bubble Lady for a magical experience.

VINTAGE CARS              

The 13th-annual Hubcaps and History Classic Car Show, which features a wide variety of interesting and amazing classic cars, will be held on Saturday only, weather permitting. Multiple awards will be given along with one award for People’s Choice. The winners will be announced at the festival on Saturday at 3 p.m.

CRUISE-IN    

The Military, Motorcycles & More Cruise-In, hosted by the Marietta Museum of History, expands this year to include more vehicles and groups.
