Ladies and gentlemen, prepare yourselves for the fifth annual Best Fest.

Best of what? Best of everything that is creative and musical and downright groovy.

There will be music. There will be marching. There will be dancing in the streets, and rocking up and down the block.

Best Fest is so magnificent it takes two days to embrace it all — Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 6 and 7.

The Extraordinary Rendition Band will be back in action, too, helping to support radio station WVVY, among other aims. The 20-piece marching band will tour all over the Island, but the real base of operations is Oak Bluffs.

The event kicks off on Saturday night with a street party on Circuit avenue from 8 to 9 p.m. Festivities continue on Sunday from noon to 2 p.m. at Washington Park (next to Our Market) and again at Ocean Park from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
