The eclectic lineup of bands at the 94.9 MIXfm Stage and the street scene create an urban street festival that has food to sample, vendors to check out, and magical street performers for entertainment. Some of the downtown businesses will offer specials or their own entertainment. It's family friendly and fun for all ages. Many of the vendors and sponsors have drawings during the evening.

The Kids' Area at the Southern Arizona Transportation Museum has interactive fun for the kids starting at about 5:30pm and a free movie. The movie August 9th will be "Toy Story" (1995) and starts at 7:30pm.

West Side Rides car club lines 6th Ave. north of Congress with classic cars. Their wax and paint draw in the crowd. The Maracana Indoor Sports Arena will sponsor a demonstration by the Lil" Kickers Soccer for Kids on The Beach located at the MLK lot at 55 North 5th (located at 5th & Toole).
