Preparations for this year's Funtastic Fourth downtown celebration are starting to pick up steam.

The 11th annual event, sponsored by the Downtown Revitalization Association in conjunction with Alon USA/Alon Brands, will be held June 28-29 on Scurry and Main streets between Third and Second, organizers said.

There will be food, vendor booths, games and children's rides aplenty, but most of all, there will be music — lots and lots of music.
