Balboa Park will host a free celebration of music Sunday to give fans a chance to enjoy everything from performances to hands-on educational programs.

The first "Make Music Day - San Diego" festival will use dozens of venues throughout the park, including the Plaza de Panama, San Diego Museum of Art Sculpture Garden and The Old Globe.

It will also host "Mass Appeal" events where large groups of musicians play together with a single type of instrument.

Music fans can explore an "Instrument Petting Zoo" set up at the Sculpture Garden.

The festival is part of a Make Music Day, celebrated internationally on June 21. It also marks the summer solstice.

KPBS Technical Director Emily Jankowski also contributed to this segment.
