Former Ypsilanti Mayor and festival committee member Cheryl Farmer explains the festival began in the late 70's...
Several historic Ypsilanti buildings will be available for tours over the weekend, and there will be two special presentations about Ypsilanti's African American history.
Of course, there are several musical acts, a food tent, and plenty of activities for the kids.
