Red Hills Fest - This Weekend!!!

The 38th annual Red Hills Festival is scheduled for this weekend in downtown Louisville. As usual
the festival will have a variety of events and entertainment available for young and old. The weekend will kick off with a Friday night Street party featuring two bands: Shake the Bucket and Pinnishook. The music will begin around 6 p.m. on Main Street and boiled crawfish will be available. For the younger ones, a carnival will be available starting Friday night and through the day on Saturday.

Saturday morning will kick off early as the Junior Auxiliary of Louisville will host a 5K and Fun Run. Runners can pre-register or register the morning of the race. Races begin at 8:30 a.m. near the intersection of Main and Columbus.

And as always, the Red Hills Car Show will be on Saturday in conjunction with the festival. The show will be held at the First Baptist Church parking lot. The Red Hills Car Show has become known as one of the larger shows in our area and usually features more than 100 vehicles. Participants can sign up from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and judging begins at 11 a.m. in more than 30 categories.

The festival itself will be held once again on Main Street with a variety of vendors including crafts, artwork and food. There will be entertainment and announcements throughout the day. And always as a special treat, Mrs. Aline Haynes will be cooking once again, serving lunch from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. behind the Winston County Courthouse.
