The event, sponsored by Salt River Lodge 180, will feature a Mountain City Cruisers Car Show, dozens of craft and food vendors, an inflatable bouncer for the kids, live entertainment, open-microphone karaoke and a special flag raising ceremony.
The festivities will kick off at 9 a.m. along Old Bardstown Road in downtown Mount Washington.
