Dixie Shehane, SpringFest committee chair, said the festival will feature around 30 artists and crafters with a variety of handmade and homemade items including woodcrafts, birdhouses, door art, jewelry, plants and functional and non-functional creations.

SpringFest will get underway at 8:30 a.m. and conclude around 3:30 p.m.

“We’ll have an outstanding selection of arts, crafts and plants,” Shehane said. “Mother’s Day is Sunday and SpringFest is a great shopping place for those special and unique gifts for moms, grandmothers and wives. There’s no place that offers more shopping fun than an arts and crafts festival.”

The entertainment of the day offers something for everyone, Shehane said.

Lenny Trawick and his daughter, Amanda, will get SpringFest off to a great start around 8:30 a.m. Saturday.

“Lenny is a popular entertainer and recently was honored as the living honoree at the Wiregrass Blues Festival in Dothan,” Shehane said. “Amanda has a beautiful voice. When you put those two voices together, they are incredible.”

Brady Singleton will step, or maybe moonwalk, on stage at 10 a.m. with his interpretation of Michael Jackson’s iconic dance moves.

Otha will then take center stage with the best of country music, old and new, around 10:15 a.m. followed by John Weaver’s Oldies and Goodies at 11:30.

The Pike County High School Jazz Ensemble will perform at 1:15 p.m. and Officer Charles Beasley’s Choir will close out the entertainment beginning around 2:30 p.m.

“The Dancers to Dine For will perform at intervals throughout the day.

Around noon, “Baby” will around via truck from Robert Hughes Farms. She will be the main attraction at the Cow Patty Drop on the grid on the backside of the festival grounds.

“Tickets for the Cow Patty Drop are $10 and are available at TB&T, Piggly Wiggly and Steed Tire Service in Brundidge.
