It's that time of the year again. VillageFest is officially returning this weekend for its 25th anniversary.

The annual event is bringing 30 of Bakersfield's most popular restaurants together to serve up some delicious food samples. There will be live entertainment with 17 different bands coming out to play. And it's all for a good cause!

All of the funds raised will go to benefit the Children's Advocates Resource Endowment (CARE), a local non-profit that raises money for local children's charities. And you still have time to get tickets for VillageFest.

It's happening this Saturday at the Kern Pioneer Village on Chester Avenue. Tickets range from $70 to $80. The event runs from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

You can purchase tickets online.
