Booths are sold out for SpringFest in Brundidge on Saturday but that doesn’t mean that there’s a lid on the fun to be had.

Dixie Shehane, event chair, said all plans have been finalized and everything is a go for fun on Saturday.

“SpringFest will get underway with registration for the Motorcycle Run at 7:30 a.m. at the Wagon Wheel Restaurant with the run set to begin at 8:30 a.m.,” Shehane said. “There’s a lot excitement surrounding the Run and we expect to have a larger number of riders.”

The entry fee is $15 for one rider and $25 for doubles. A free breakfast at the Wagon Wheel accompanies each paid entry fee.

“The SpringFest Motorcycle Run will start at the Wagon Wheel with the first stop at Beasley Honda in Ozark,” Shehane said. “From Ozark the bikers will go to Ward’s Yamaha in Troy, to the Country Mall at Pine Level and back to Brundidge in time to participate in the SpringFest Parade at 1 p.m. At each stop, there will be drawings for prizes.”

To pre-register for the SpringFest Motorcycle Run, call Shehane at 334-735-9191.

SpringFest is a traditional arts and crafts show with entertainment and festival foods.

“We have a full complement of 40 arts and crafts vendors with everything from fresh vegetables and plants to artwork, woodwork and jewelry,” Shehane said. “Food booths will feature barbecue of all kinds, hamburgers, hotdogs, boiled peanuts, turkey legs, Cajun foods and Italian Ice. There will be great shopping opportunities and lots of good things to eat.”

The kids’ corner will feature an inflatable bouncer and a local organization will have free books for young children.

The lineup of entertainment includes the American Legion Dancers, The Fabulous Shades, the Benton Brothers and Company, SheBANG! and Teletha Nichols.

“We invite everyone to stick around for the Pet Parade that gets underway at 12:45 p.m. and the SpringFest Parade at 1 p.m.,” Shehane said. “SpringFest is also an opportunity to visit the shops and eateries in Brundidge. Several of our merchants will have in-store specials and we encourage everyone to take a few minutes to see what all Brundidge has to offer.”

SpringFest is sponsored by the Brundidge Business Association. The BBA also sponsors the annual Independence Day Parade the last Saturday in June.
