Laurel and Hardy fans are expected to flock to Harlem Saturday for the 26th annual Oliver Hardy Festival.
Harlem, the birthplace of the more rotund member of the famous comedic duo, will be celebrated beginning with a downtown parade at 10 a.m.
“We’re bigger than we’ve been in years,” Stacie Hart, the city’s Community Services director, said of the festival. “We’ve got an awesome parade planned.”
Opening ceremonies will be held at 11 a.m. Live entertainment on two stages will go throughout the day including a 45-minute part of Seussical the Musical.
