On Saturday, July 1, head for Ballard Avenue and Olde City Park for all-day fun, including top bluegrass bands, arts-and-crafts vendors, giant car show, a chili cook-off and great food.

Bluegrass on Ballard is sponsored by the Wylie Downtown Merchants Association, City of Wylie, Bluegrass Heritage Foundation, East Fork Masonic Lodge, Wylie American Legion Post 315, and North Texas Equestrian Center.
