This year’s Heartland Festival has a longer name and recent additions to the schedule will be mixed with familiar favorites.
The revamped Heartland Festival in the Park begins tonight. The first events at 5 p.m. serve as the debut for the new city-run event.
The City of Elizabethtown, in partnership with the Elizabethtown Tourism and Convention Bureau, is coordinating the festival. City Events Coordinator Sarah Vaughn said this is a time of transition for the decades-old festival, which is centered at Freeman Lake Park.
