Kung Fu fighters, Scottish dancers, magicians and clowns will be providing some of the entertainment at Saturday's Glen Elk Ethnic Festival.
The festival will be held from 10 a.m.-11 p.m. on Baltimore Avenue in the newly revitalized Glen Elk section of Clarksburg.
Admission is free.
The festival will feature ethnic foods and entertainment, according to Dot Underwood, festival co-coordinator.
"We are going to have all different types of ethnic food that may have been missing in the past," Underwood said. "I just signed up someone from Parkersburg who is going to make Oriental food."
Children's rides and games will be a highlight of the festival, Underwood said. The bingo, rides and games will be open all day, she said.
"This year is the first year we're going to have rides for the children," Underwood said. "People have told us they thought that was what was missing."
This is the sixth year the festival will be held.
It is sponsored by the Glen Elk Village Development Association.
Nashville recording artist Brenda Waller will be performing two shows beginning at 8 p.m.
"We're hoping the attendance will increase this year," Underwood said. "It's a chance to have a safe, enjoyable day with the family."
