Troy Fest Saturday on the square
Visitors to Troy Fest on Saturday will find a toe-tapping good time, thanks to day-long slate of local entertainers.
"It's all local entertainment and that's really great too, because that brings families out and it brings the community together when you have your own doing something," said Shelia Jackson, one of the event's organizers.
Among the featured entertainers is Brandon McClure, a 10th grader at Charles Henderson High School, who started singing when he was 5 years old.
"I just like to perform in front of different people. I just love doing what I do," he said.
McClure said he'd be performing some patriotic songs, some gospel songs, and "just play some music – whatever (the people) want me to do."
Brandon's performance will begin at 11 a.m. on the Square.
The Colley Senior Complex's Barbershop Quartet will open Troy Fest's entertainment at 10 a.m. Perfect Harmony will perform at 11:45, followed by the Dixie Darling Cloggers at noon.
The Sweet Adelaines will perform at 12:30 p.m. and SheBang takes the stage at 2 p.m.
Dancers from the Troy School of Dance kick up their heels at 2:30 p.m. and Silver Streak performs at 3 p.m.
Tim Catrett starts his blues and jazz set at 4 p.m. and the Jazz Chamber Ensemble concludes the entertainment at 4:30 p.m.
