"This year's lineup we expect to be great," said Von Starkey, president of Streetsboro Family Days. "We have heard from a lot of people that they are excited for the return of [Journey tribute band ] E5C4P3 on Friday and Simply Queen coming from Canada for a performance on Saturday."

Other bands that will be performing include Heartbreaker, which is described as a tribute band to both Heart and Benatar; 42 South, a country band; and Sweet Nothings.

The festival also will include fair food vendors and specialty vendors for all four days, and a full lineup of entertainment. A car, truck and bike show will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.

Additional activities will be scheduled closer to the event, Starkey said.

Starkey said amusement rides will not be returning to the festival this year because amusement companies are unavailable and in short supply.

"We will have our local Gateway Recovery and Towing providing 'Smash a Car' again this year, as well as Buckin' Billy's Mechanical Bull and the Little Roaming Railroad on Saturday and Sunday," Starkey said.
