The weather was beautiful on Saturday for the annual event, which brought thousands of residents to Dickson Street for a pancake breakfast, live music, kid-friendly activities, arts and crafts vendors, and the annual bed races.
A Fayetteville tradition is set to return for a 31st year this weekend.
The festival, set for the day before Easter on Saturday, April 19, has added an old fashioned egg hunt to the event lineup.
Organizers are expecting the 2014 race to draw even more runners.
Organizers of the event last week announced the music lineup for the event, coming up on Saturday, April 19 on Dickson Street.
The deadline to submit a vendor application for this year’s event is April 5.
The annual event is set to include a pancake breakfast, 5K run, live music, and several other family-oriented events, including the popular bed races up Dickson Street.
Neither rain, snow, nor extreme heat could stop Springfest from returning to Fayetteville last month, and as a result, the event was able to raise $4,400 for the Washington County chapter of Habitat for Humanity this year.
The event featured a dog parade, a pancake breakfast, a pub crawl, and performances by nearly 30 music and performing arts groups.

Organizers on Monday announced that the event, originally planned for May 4, has been rescheduled for Saturday, June 22.
Organizers said a new date would soon be announced.
Springfest, Foamfest, and Artosphere Trail Mix are all happening on Saturday, May 4 in downtown Fayetteville.
Organizers of the event are seeking arts, crafts, and street food vendors as well as non-profit organizations to fill a few remaining vendor booth spaces for the 2013 festival, set for May 4 on Dickson Street in downtown Fayetteville.
