The City of Powder Springs distributed the following press release about their second annual “Spring into Spring” downtown festival.

To celebrate its vibrant business and community offerings, and mark the return of warmer temperatures, the City of Powder Springs will host its second-annual “Spring Into Spring” downtown festival from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 9.

The free, family-friendly event will be appropriate for all ages and will feature live music performed by Boogie Down. A selection of food trucks will be parked along Marietta Street in the downtown area, with food vendors to include Zaxby’s, Smith’s Gourmet Creations, Linear Park Cafe, Decorative Funnel Cakes and more. Downtown restaurants and shops will be open, though a portion of the roadway will be closed to vehicle traffic to accommodate pedestrians.

A petting zoo and other activities also will be offered, and those who complete an activity card after visiting all participating businesses and vendors will be entered to win a prize. Cards will be available at the City of Powder Springs tent.
