The three-day family festival ViVa! Vienna! returns to the Town of Vienna for Memorial Day weekend.
Attendees can enjoy live entertainment, amusement rides and items from more than 160 vendors during the free festival, which kicks off on Saturday (May 25) and ends Monday (May 27) at 245 W. Maple Avenue.
Some of the activities during the festival include the semi-finals for Vienna Idol, a blood drive on Sunday and Monday, more than two dozen entertainers performing on three stages and a Memorial Day Tribute at 1 p.m. on Monday.
ViVa! Vienna! is set to have 24 different amusement rides. Tickets for the rides cost $1 each. Rides for small children require three tickets per ride and major rides require three to five tickets.
Ahead of the event, the Town of Vienna has tweeted some black and white photos of previous ViVa! Vienna! attendees.
Started by the Rotary Club of Vienna more than three decades ago, the annual event donates all of the proceeds to charities.
This was taken three years ago at ViVa! It's the time to create memories so you can look both back and forward at a weekend some would call the birthplace of summer. Hope they're both back for this one. ViVa! Vienna! takes you to that time starting 10am this Saturday #nostalgia pic.twitter.com/4Q74nmohEa
