— LaborFest is coming back for its 20th year.

The three-day festival, held annually at the Janesville United Auto Workers grounds, 1795 Lafayette St., begins at noon Saturday, Sept. 4.


The festival will kick off with the teen mud volleyball competition. The festival will also offer a rock-climbing wall, petting zoo, pony rides and assorted games.


Crowds will also be entertained by seven musical acts, including a group of Elvis Presley and Dolly Parton impersonators from Chicago. On Sunday, kids will be given the chance to marvel at wildlife by way of a live bird education event and a snake exhibit. Families can catch a glimpse of Stylez Unknown, a breakdancing group, all three days.


The LaborFest parade will make its way through downtown Janesville starting at 1 p.m. Monday. Organizers will end the festival at 8 p.m. Monday with a raffle that includes a grand prize of four indoor club seats for the Packers-Vikings game Oct. 24.


LaborFest is open to all. For more information, check out the festís website at laborfest.org.
