From Charlotte Five:

Spring is festival season in the Charlotte area and this Saturday is just the start of fun-filled celebrations across the region.

The Garibaldi Festival, a free annual event in historic downtown Belmont, kicks off at 11 a.m. on Saturday in Stowe Park and offers fun for the whole family. This year’s festival celebrates the creative community and features live music, craft beer, and about 40 local art and craft vendors.
