All things zucchini will be celebrated at the annual Obetz Zucchinifest Aug. 23-26.

The free festival offers more than just zucchini bread and burgers though. There's also a nice variety of family entertainment, including a car show, parade and magic show.

The event also includes rides, crafts and games.

And moms who grew up in the eighties may want to attend Saturday night when Joan Jett and the Blackhearts perform at 8.
