TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) -

This week kicks off a four-wheeled family reunion of sorts as thousands of Jeeps will rumble back to where it all started -- Toledo -- for Jeep Fest.  The fest is free and open to the public.

Official events kick off Friday, with the Jeep Off-Road Course Welcome Party. This course will feature 18 obstacles for Jeeps to play on. Also on Friday, $10 gets you in to the kick-off concert featuring Waterville's own Oliver Hazard opening for headliner KC and the Sunshine Band. Tickets can be purchased at PromenadeConcerts.com 

Saturday is the All-Jeep Parade at 11 a.m. through downtown Toledo. The parade starts at Lafayette Street, travels north on Summit, and turns west on Jackson Street. Come out and see WTOL's First Alert Defender, which is getting specially tricked out for the festivities. 


Check out the All-Jeep Festival and Car Show at SeaGate Centre, which will include historic and concept displays, vendors, food trucks, kids' activities and a beer garden. At 4:30 p.m. Saturday, there will be a raffle drawing.

Live music will take place Saturday at the Promenade Park Stage (12:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m., 4:30 p.m.), Levis Square (12:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m.) and SeaGate Centre (12:30 p.m.). The party moves to Hensville Park at 7 p.m. where attendees can catch Dueling Pianos Under the Stars

Runners and walkers can get their motors running Sunday morning at 8:30 during the four-mile run and one-mile walk, hosted by Run Toledo.  The run starts at Promenade Park.

From 8 a.m.-1 p.m., the All-Jeep Car Show is open again at the SeaGate Centre.
