in downtown Gahanna

The Creekside Blues & Jazz Festival starts today and runs through Sunday in downtown Gahanna! This annual event is packed with family fun, including amusement rides, activities and games, great food and, of course, great music on five different stages.

You'll especially want to check out the Family Fun Zone (Saturday from 12 noon to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 noon to 4 p.m. in the VFW Memorial Park area): This is where families can engage in free, hands-on blues and jazz musical learning, along with crafts, face painting and much more!

Adult admission passes range from $5 to $8, while children under 12 and military personnel (with ID) and their families are admitted for free! For more information, go to www.creeksidebluesandjazz.com.
