There will be limited seating at the magic show in the War Memorial Building. Tickets for the free show are available at Shepherds-town Library, says Lisa Younis, event secretary.
For adults, there will be a beer truck at one end of the festival area. Bring ID.
People can stop by the War Memorial Building at 4:30 p.m. to see Happyslap, young actors from the Contemporary American Theater Festival, rehearsing, Younis says.
The street festival began last year as a celebration of the community's love for the arts, Marshall says.
The event dovetailed with the theater festival and Goose Route Dance Festival last year but will he held a little earlier this year in hopes of cooler weather and bigger crowds, Marshall says.
