(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) - The 30th annual Southside Fall Festival began Friday evening at Hyde Park in St. Joseph.

The annual event began with the opening ceremonies which welcomed the festival's royalty, singers, and St. Joseph's Mayor Bill McMurray. 

This year, the festival will have a petting zoo.

"It's got a petting zoo. We haven't had a petting zoo in quite some time so it's, you got to go down and see the animals," Gary Pettis, Southside Fall Festival Co-Chair said. "They are great."

In addition to the petting zoo, attendees can enjoy craft booths, festival food, and activities for kids. 

The festival continues Saturday morning with a parade that begins at 10 a.m. on King Hill Avenue. 

The event runs through Sunday.
