BBA readies SpringFest
Published 9:03 pm Thursday, May 8, 2014
Rain is in the forecast for Saturday but that hasn’t dampened the spirits of the Brundidge Business Association members nor has it changed their plans for SpringFest 2014.
“SpringFest on Saturday is a ‘go’ rain or shine,” said Dixie Shehane, festival chair of the sponsoring BBA. “Weather predictions can change between now and Saturday and we are planning to have a great SpringFest – our 4th Annual SpringFest.”
Shehane said interest in the festival has been tremendous, especially in the last week.
“We’ve added 12 arts and crafts vendors and that brings the total to between 45 and 50,” she said. “And, that’s just the arts and crafts. The spots for food vendors sold out early. We’ll have all of the traditional festival foods and then some.”
In addition to the shopping opportunities and the eat-treats, Shehane said the kids’ activities will provide loads of fun and the entertainment will be outstanding.
“Studio 116 in Brundidge and Walgreens in Troy will have a variety of arts and crafts for the kids to create. We’ll have inflatables, too, so there will be a lot of fun for the kids to have while their parents shop and enjoy the entertainment,” Shehane said.
“The entertainment will get off to a great start with Lenny Trawick and his band at 8:30 a.m. Tammy Chavers will be on stage at 11:30 a.m. with Charlie. Tammy is a ventriloquist and she brings Charlie to life. You won’t even think of him as a dummy.”
At 12:15 p.m., the Pike County High School Jazz Ensemble will perform and Henry Everett and Casual will take center stage at 1 p.m. and close out SpringFest 2014.
Shehane said SpringFest is an opportune time to spend time together as a family and to treat mom to a Mother’s Day outing.
“I don’t know of many moms who wouldn’t be thrilled to be treated to a mom’s day out at SpringFest on Saturday,” she said. “So, plan to make SpringFest a family outing because we have something fun for everyone. There’s no admission charge to SpringFest. We just want everyone to come and have a good time.”
