The Fourth Annual SpringFest is set for Saturday, May 10 on the grounds of the historical Bass House in downtown Brundidge.
The spring festival will feature arts, crafts, food, entertainment and the kids’ korner. Admission and fun are free.
SpringFest is sponsored annually by the Brundidge Historical Society and, as always, the variety in all areas is what makes the festival such a great success, said Dixie Shehane, Festival coordinator.
“We have a great day planned for people of all ages,” Shehane said. “SpringFest is designed for family fun and entertainment. The entertainment will be almost non-stop beginning at 8:30 a.m. with Lenny Trawick and his Country Rhythm and Blues Band. At 11:30, ventriloquist Tammy Chavers will perform and it’s a show that no one will want to miss.”
The Pike County High School Jazz Band will take the stage at 12:15 p.m. and Casual, the Henry Everett Band, will follow the jazz band and close out SpringFest 2014.
SpringFest is held on Mother’s Day weekend so it’s a good time be treat mom to a day of shopping and fun. The Festival will feature a large variety of items for gifts, for the home, for the lawn and for the kids, said Tonya Williamson, SpringFest committee member.
“SpringFest will feature quite an array of arts and crafts,” Williamson said. “Vendors will have handmade items including swings, planters, birdhouses and feeders, gumball machines, knives, jewelry, music boxes and clothing for children and adults”
Artists will have ceramics, portraits, photography and paintings on display and for sale. And, for those whose interest is more in the outdoors, vendors will have flowers, indoor and outdoor plants, homegrown vegetables, rocks and minerals and bee catchers.
There are always plenty of good things to eat at SpringFest, grilled items, shrimp and oyster kabobs, peanuts, cotton candy, funnel cakes, lemonade and Italian ice, Williamson said.
For the kids there will be inflatables, face painting and crafts.
Shehane said Saturday, May 10 will be a day of springtime fun in downtown Brundidge.
“We invite everyone to come to SpringFest and spend the day with us,” Shehane said. “And, while you’re in town, take time to visit our downtown merchants and then come back and visit us again.”
