Springfest 2015 is set for Saturday in downtown Brundidge. Admission and fun are free, and everyone is invited.

The arts and crafts festival is sponsored annually by the Brundidge Business Association and is held on the grounds of the Historic Bass House on South Main Street.

Dixie Shehane, BBA president, said Springfest features arts and crafts, non-stop entertainment, food vendors, informational booths and a kids’ corner with two giant inflatables and games.

Spingfest will get underway at 8:30 a.m. and conclude around 4 p.m.

“We have a large variety of arts and crafts booths, including artwork, jewelry, woodworking, clothes and specialty items,” Shehane said. “The ‘plant man’ drives 150 miles to be here each year and his booth is always popular. Springfest will be a great time to purchase that special gift for Mother’s Day.”

Shehane said there will be a variety of festival foods available throughout the day.

“We’ll have all kinds of grilled foods and roasted corn and boiled peanuts,” she said. “There will be a variety of baked goods including pound cakes and iced cakes. So, those who are looking for something sweet for Mother’s Day will certainly find it at Springfest.”

Entertainment will begin early with the Country Rhythm and Blues Band and continue throughout the day. Randy Ross and the American Legion Dancers will also take center stage during the morning hours. The gospel choir from Mt. Olive No. 2 will begin performing at noon, and Henry Everett and Johnny Barron will be on stage during the afternoon.

“The Brundidge Business Association invites churches to set up tables with information about their church activities,” Shehane said. “There’s no need to call ahead. A church representative just needs to contact someone from the BBA Saturday morning, and we’ll have a place for them to set up.

Shehane said everyone is encouraged to take some time to visit Brundidge’s downtown area.

“There are a lot of changes underway in the downtown area, and more changes are planned for the coming months,” she said. “We are looking forward to having a lot of people in town Saturday. It will be a great time to shop for mom and to spend time with her.”
