This year marks this annual community celebration’s 43rd year, and Dexter Daze promises to deliver once again with fun-filled time for youngsters of all ages. Kevin Devine plays his enthusiastic brand of family music in the Friday noon sun, followed by an Acme Party Works with a rock wall, Olympic bounce course, and three shot basketball. The parade will march through town on Saturday, with street artists, musicians and performers making their rounds all day long. The Leslie Science and Nature Center provides critters for furry and feathery enjoyment, and A2 Magic will leave the crowd speechless. The whole festival ends with an explosive finale –  fireworks at Mill Creek Park.

10am-8pm, August 14; 10am-10pm, August 15. Downtown Dexter. dexterdaze.org
