Crestline Rocks has become an event that families and young people alike look forward to each year.Crestline Rocks (4–6pm) Help Birmingham’s inner-city preschoolers get a head start by joining in an afternoon of family fun and entertainment! This collaborative event between PreSchool Partners and Regions Bank will have the best of the area’s local bands playing at the Emmet O’Neal Library.
