The festival is run by the Bloomington-Normal Jaycees. All money raised from the event goes directly towards local organizations in McLean County.
Friday will feature performances from Emilele, Clayton Shay, Hot Sauce Universe and Jared Grabb. On Saturday, Kyle Yapp, Jorden Street, Chris Clemens and Jack Dupp Dup will perform. When there’s not live entertainment, DJ Ryan Nolan will be keeping the party alive.
Pet Central Helps will bring their adoptable rescue dogs on to the baseball field for guests to visit. However, guests are not permitted to bring their own pets.
From 2 to 2:45 on Saturday, Hustle and Hops will give an opportunity for a fun workout. Local fitness trainer Sarah Lutterbie will lead the workout, which costs $5. All proceeds will be donated to charity.
