TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Family fun is coming this weekend in downtown Terre Haute.

This is the 23rd year for the festival.

It will feature live music, children's games, food, a silent auction, cash prizes, church tours, and a beer garden.

"We have a new beer this year, from the brewery is providing us...a Saint Ben's 'hoppy mock beer' just for the festival," Dan Weber, the festival committee co-chair said.

The two-day festival happens this Friday and Saturday from 5:00 p.m. until midnight, both nights.

Live music starts each night at 6:00.
