The family-friendly event, which is free and open to the public, will be held along several blocks of North Main St. in Historic St. Charles, Mo. where more than 30 restaurants and over 75 shops are located.

"The generous grant will be used to support our upcoming annual art festival, which has taken place in downtown St. Charles for the past 26 years."
