More than 50 art, craft, food and business vendors are signed up for this year’s Hooray for Harriman Labor Day Street Festival.

The festival, which moves back to its downtown origins this year, starts at 10 a.m. Sept. 6 at the Princess Theater.

An entire city block will be devoted to antique cars for aficionados to peruse.

Youngsters will also have their own city block devoted to games and fun.

Special events throughout the day include square dancing at the Princess Theater at 11 a.m., Wild Blue Yonder at noon on the Walden Street stage, Renegade Championship Wrestling at Queen and Roane streets and the Singing Cookes and Cooke Brothers at 2 p.m. on the Walden Street stage.

Nonstop gospel and Bluegrass music will be performed by a number of area artists on the Walden Street stage from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Those attending are welcome to bring a lawn chair for stage-side entertainment.
