Kids will enjoy the art yard Friday and Saturday in the Wells Fargo parking lot from 2-6 p.m.
On Saturday, Bad Shakespeare will run throughout the day between the bowling alley and Marsha’s Sammich Shop-N-Bakery. This new addition to the festival features Utah State University Eastern students performing monologues and scenes. Water balloons and tomatoes will be on sale for festival attendees to throw at the actors.
