Kudzu Festival just one week away
The 2010 Kudzu Festival will bring back fond memories of old-fashioned, hometown fairs during three, fun-filled days July 14-17 at the Marshall County Fairgrounds.
Festival-goers can count on annual favorites, including carnival rides and good music, but new this year will be barrel racing and best cake and pie competition that should highlight some of the region’s skills and talents.
The Holly Springs Chamber of Commerce and Marshall County Fairgrounds, co-sponsors of this year’s festival, have combined aspects of favorite events from both organizations for a Kudzu Festival that offers something for everyone. Lisa Liddy and Beth Overall serve as co-chairs, representing the chamber and fairgrounds, respectively.
The festival kicks off this year with the chamber’s Business After Hours on Thursday, opening night of the carnival and local entertainment. Plan to get your appetite started with the best cake and pie competition, enjoy carnival rides and sit back for entertainment by the Davide House Band and KC Johns Band. Saturday’s activities include the popular arts and crafts fair to be held on the historic town square, a pet show, a firemen extraction demonstration with Jaws of Life and Wings helicopter fly-in, all-day carnival and the Kudzu Festival barrel race.
Main Street sponsored an art project celebrating the Kudzu Festival with Holly Springs and Potts Camp schools and students’ art will be on display during the Thursday evening Business After Hours.
