A record crowd took advantage of near-perfect weather to soak in the Clarksville Lake Country Wine Festival Saturday on the bridge in downtown Clarksville. Attendance was up and the new vendors and bands “made for a fun day,” said local realtor and Chamber of Commerce member Karin Kuhn.

Butner, N.C. artist Mike Buzzell, posted the following message on social media, following Saturday’s festival. “I got good news and bad news, I won’t be showing a lot of my paintings at Mebane’s Dogwood Festival coming up in two weeks because of the good news — I sold a lot of them at a wine festival in Clarksville, this Saturday”
