Red Hills Fest Kicks Off on Friday Night

The 34th Red Hills Festival will take place beginning Friday Night
(May 23) and all day Saturday in downtown Louisville. In a sign that our community is returning to our "new normal" the event will be held as scheduled with no curtailment of any events.

Organizers are expecting a larger than usual crowd and the weather should be great for the weekend. In addition to the regular events such as the car show, 5K walk/run, carnival, music and vendors, this year's festival will include an auction at 1:00 pm with proceeds going to the Winston County Disaster Relief Fund- "Winston Strong".

The Festival is centered in downtown Louisville along South Columbus Avenue for the main stage and vendors. The Red Hills Car Show will be held a block away in the First Baptist Church parking lot on South Church Avenue with the carnival and "Battle of the Bands" in between the two areas.

The RED HILLS CAR SHOW has been moved from First Baptist to the Taylor Fire Museum on North Church Ave right past Gregory's and Hardee's.  The Museum will open at 10 AM. The car show will be open at 8 and judging starts at 11AM. Call Jerry if you get lost @  803-4205.

The fun kicks off on Friday evening at 7:00 pm as the band Slim Pickins and then Ashley Tutor will perform until 10:00 pm.
