MURPHYSBORO, Ill. -- The group, the Friends of Murphysboro, is brewing up a big celebration. The Big Muddy Monster Brew Fest returns Saturday (Oct. 13) from noon until 4 p.m. at Riverside Park.

This year's event is a fundraiser for a new splash park in Murphysboro. Tickets are still available. You can purchase here up until Friday or tickets will be available at the gate. More than 300 types of craft beer will be available, including several home brews.

There will be free shuttles before and after the event. Stops include Martel's Pizza, Brews Brothers Taproom and Tres Hombres in Carbondale. Organizers have added new social media features this year too, including a Snapchat filter that will be active on the day of the event and a new Instagram page (@bigmuddymonsterbrewfest). 

The band Amped Up will perform and food will be for sale from 17th Street, Dale's Burger Shack and the Haute Wheels Food Truck. The event is for people 21 and older. You must have an ID to enter.

Since it started nine years ago, the Big Muddy Monster Brew Fest has raised $90,000 for the splash park.
