Kraut Fest returns this year with three stages of music and entertainment, a carnival, ziplining, fireworks, a car show and a lot of sauerkraut.

The three-day event kicks off on Friday at the Caledonia-Mount Pleasant Memorial Park and runs through Sunday. The entry fee to get in: $10 for whoever is in your car and that includes admission into the festival. For those walking their way to all of that kraut goodness… $5 per person, but children ages five and under are free.

The entry fee includes all three music and entertainment stages. Here’s what’s on tap.
