If you know of any anti-rain dances, voodoo, or other magical rain-prevention techniques (where were you earlier this week?), Saturday would be a good time to break them out.
That’s because the 29th annual Fayetteville Springfest is happening downtown on Saturday, April 30 and it would be nice to have a rain-free festival this year.
Highlights of the event include the annual pancake breakfast benefiting Habitat for Humanity, live music on the newly-dedicated Bruce Walker Memorial Stage, bed races, a car show, pony rides, carnival rides, and Step 1 Theatre’s new 2″ Play Festival.
If you get lost, there will be an information booth in front of Jose’s (324 West Dickson Street). That’s also where to pick up an official event t-shirt, if you’re interested.
We got our hands on the full lineup of music, performing arts, and other activities happening at Springfest this year, and we’ve collected them below. Have some fun, why don’t you?
