Giant food sculptures, live music, children's activities and a 5K race are expected to draw thousands of people to Marathon Park in Wausau for United Way of Marathon County's first ever Community Fest.

The festival, which will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, replaces the organization's annual parade after a 26-year run. Organizers said the new event aims to bring the community together with fun, family-focused activities, all while helping to stockpile area food pantries.

Vote for your favorite of the 27 enormous sculptures on display, all of which are created entirely with food, by bringing your own non-perishable food item to donate while you enjoy food from popular area vendors. For more information, visit www.unitedwaymc.org.
