LOVES PARK (WREX) -
Loves Park is kicking off the Memorial Day Weekend with a popular annual festival
The Young at Heart Festival is returning for its 44th consecutive year.
The festival kicked off Friday night and will run through Monday.
This year's festival will include live music and performances, carnival rides and food, fireworks, a beer garden, and a two hour Young at Heart parade.
"It really generates a lot of business for Loves Park and Machesney Park people look forward to this. After 44 years they know its memorial weekend. And we try to give them a really good value for the price they can spend all four days," said Diana Johnson, with the festival.
An admission button is good for all four days and can be purchased for $9. Children under 6 are free.
