Brundidge is hosting its annual Arts and Crafts Show and the Pike Pioneer Museum is having its annual festival.

Whether you’re an antiques, arts and crafts fan or just enjoy seeing fun and unique events, there’s something out there for you this weekend.

At the Pioneer Museum, a lumberjack show will be the featured entertainment that will offer some incredible feats by some talented professionals who have upheld a tradition dating back many years.

In Brundidge, there will be collectibles, arts and crafts by locals and some people from other areas, offering visitors an opportunity to get their hands on some unique Christmas items for friends or family members.

The importance of both of the events is that they will offer wholesome family entertainment that people of all ages can enjoy. And as local attractions, people here won’t have far to go to take in the entertainment.

Supporting local festivals and events is important. Without patronage by locals, the likelihood of events continuing in the future lessens more and more with each grim turnout. Festivals bring people to the area, and with them comes cash that they will spend on food, lodging and a host of other things, all of which has a significant impact on both the tax base and on the creation of jobs here.

Make weekend plans to attend one or both of the special events Pike County will offer this weekend. With your support, generations of families to come will be able to enjoy the same family-based recreation you have access to Saturday.
