The beautiful weather, the large crowds, and the awesome bands made this year's 28th annual music festival a huge success!
The Boy Scout Troop 401 and Venture Crew 406 raised the American flag over City Hall while members of the South Granville High School Marching Band opened the day with the National Anthem, followed by performances by local elementary school choirs. Talented artists Buckshot Betty, Rhythm Express Band of Rocky Mount, GrassStreet, The Invaders Band, River Ratz, Tim Cifers, Cumberland County Line Bluegrass, and Tyler Kinchen & the Right Pieces entertained the crowd with a variety of bluegrass, blues, R&B, soul, country, and rock.
Special guest Josh Chapin of ABC11 News assisted Mayor Bobby Wheeler with emcee duties, and a drawing for a gift basket including a set of DPAC tickets to see Kansas, one night stay at Durham Aloft, a Burger Bach dining experience, tickets to Granville Haunt Farm and a variety of goodies from local businesses was won by Deborah Bair of Oxford.
More than 100 vendors and local shops along Main Street offered a wide variety of hand-made home goods and decor, jewelry, clothing & accessories for all ages, and some promotional vendors! Of course we had food vendors too, the traditional burgers, hotdogs, cheesesteaks & fries to baton rouge cuisine, turkey legs, smoked Jamaican jerk; there was BBQ and varieties of chicken, mexican food, brunswick stew and Chick-fil-A! Ohh, and we had desserts too...homemade ice creams, specialty cupcakes and gourmet candied apples are just to name a few!
