A lot is happening Saturday evening, including the MuralFest, which features live mural painting, music, and interactive art.

Aside from all of the creativeness with live mural painting and music, chefs are showing their own form of creativity on-site, too. Black Market BBQ and La Colombia food trucks will be setting up shop to deliver the tasty bites during the celebration. Additionally, there will be cupcakes for those craving something sweet.
