The children's area will be larger than in past years. There will be crafts, face painting, pony rides, a giant slide, a moon walk and a rock wall for climbing.

“We also have some surprises planned,” Wallace said.

The arts festival charity this year is Parents Helping Parents, a nonprofit organization that reaches out to parents who think their children may be using alcohol and drugs.

Donations will be accepted for chances to win a basket filled with items valued at more than $1,000.

Downtown streets will be closed at 8 a.m. Thursday and reopen at 8 p.m. Sunday. The Citylink bus transfer station has been moved from Festival Market Place to Fifth Street and Littler Avenue during the festival.

“We are looking for a big weekend,” Wallace said. “We are ready and excited.”
