An annual celebration of fast, unique and/or bizarre cars is coming back to Alexandria this spring for its third year.

The Old Town Festival of Speed & Style, presented by Burke and Herbert Bank, is scheduled to come back on May 22.

The event takes over the 200-400 blocks of King Street and the 100 blocks of North Royal and North Fairfax streets from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

“View dozens of rare and exotic cars up close, made famous by their speed, performance and elegance,” the website for the festival said. “This will be enhanced by a presentation of style, fashion and live music provided by over 40 local merchants.”

The event is free to attend, but proceeds from other activities in the festival will go to the USO and local nonprofits ALIVE! and the Campagna Center.
