The first-ever Stories on the Sidewalk event on Saturday will bring to life the tales of 12 local historical figures at different stations through a stretch of downtown Bakersfield.

Put on by the Arts Council of Kern, the 11 stops on the walk each portray different notable figures in Kern history, including Col. Thomas Baker, Alfred Harrell and Flossie Haggard.
