Farmer’s Day festival Saturday in South Hill / October 01, 2014

The Town of South Hill will celebrate the community’s agriculture heritage with the 12th annual Farmer’s Day, coming up this Saturday, Oct. 4 at Centennial Park from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.

The kickoff event for the day is the Tractor Parade: If you have a tractor that you would like to enter in the parade, there’s still time: contact the South Hill Chamber of Commerce for an application at (434) 447-4547. Categories include: old tractors pre-1970 models, any tractor after 1970, tractors pulling old farm trailers and old equipment, or horse- or mule-drawn buggies or wagons. There is no fee to enter the tractor parade.

Visitors will have a chance to view the parade tractors throughout the day as the festivities move over to Centennial Park. Country arts & crafts, old fashion fun & games, food vendors, petting zoo and more will be part of day — rain or shine. Entertainment will be provided by Donald and Lois Lewis and Classic Country.

Farmer’s Day typically draws a crowd of more than a thousand people. To be a vendor, contact the Chamber; vendor spaces are 11 feet by 11 feet and rent for $25.00 each, payable in advance.

Some of the sponsors who have signed on to help with the event are Taylor-Wright Farm, Mecklenburg Electric, Springleaf Financial and Benchmark Bank. Farmer’s Day is sponsored by the South Hill Revitalization Committee; to be a SHRC event sponsor for $100, contact Frank Malone at 434-447-4547 or Lisa Clary at 434-447-4823, or e-mail .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
