Dancers 8 to 10 years old will be scattered among the crowd, each wearing something green, about 2 p.m. at Atkins Park Tavern.
One will begin dancing in part of the crowd and others will follow one by one, said dance teacher Mary McGehee. The group of about 12 kids will form a flash mob, she said.
“These are talented dancers who may have a future with dance,” McGehee said.
Students are mostly local, she said, but some come from other areas in the northwest part of the state.
Today’s flash mob will be a rehearsal for a recital at the Smyrna Community Center in May when young dancers will combine hip-hop and ballet.
The event also will include musical performances and games for all ages.
On Saturday, Ron Hamdallah, a blues artist, performs at 3 p.m. Southern rock band Chris Stalcup and the Grange goes on stage at 5:30 followed by Southern rock band Radio Lucent at 8 p.m.
Mayor Max Bacon will dye the water in the Market Village fountain green at 5 p.m. Saturday, and games continue throughout the day.
For children, there will be a 65-foot inflatable obstacle course and games. Adults can play games, too, and join beer pong or corn hole tournaments all weekend.
Games and music continue outside until 10:30 p.m. Saturday and then more bands and a DJ continue the celebration indoors at the tavern, and then Sunday until 10 p.m.
Sunday bands include The Armory at 3 p.m. and Reynolds and Williams at 6:30 p.m.
“Atkins Park has always been known for good music,” said Bettie Cagle with the Atkins Park Tavern. “We are just continuing with that trend.”
The events will take place throughout the Village Green area between Atlanta Street and city hall.
