Hannah McClellan, co-founder of the event, said Summer Fest is very family friendly with several activities that are either free or very affordable.

“It’s a nice community event, it’s very family-friendly,” McClellan said. “The goal from the beginning has been to ensure that it is family-friendly and very affordable. It is free to attend, and most of the activities are free as well.”
