BACK WITH A BANG

Saturday’s street fair drew a huge crowd.
After year’s absence, Lakefest draws tens of thousands to downtown Clarksville for music, fireworks and more

HELLO (AGAIN) TO LAKEFEST

South Boston News
After it was cancelled last year due to the pandemic, the Virginia Lake Festival returns Friday and Saturday, in Clarksville. Although the traditional Thursday night hot air balloon kickoff event has been called off, Town and Chamber officials are expecting a robust turnout for Friday night’s Opening Ceremonies and Saturday’s all-day street fair, 7 p.m. concert and fireworks show at nightfall. Due to the late start pulling together the affair, Lakefest will feature fewer vendors but plenty for guests to enjoy — artworks, crafts and gift items for sale on Virginia Avenue and at downtown Clarksville shops, and a variety of foods by out-of-town vendors and Clarksville restaurants. For a full rundown of Lakefest activities, check out The Sun’s July Lake Edition. (File photo)

South Boston NewsSouth Boston NewsSouth Boston News
Clarksville welcomed guests Saturday for the return of the Clarksville Wine Festival, held for the first time in two years after last year’s cancellation for COVID-19. The 2021 festival took place at a new site, The Delicate Flower bed and breakfast inn on Virginia Avenue, which afforded ample space in the front, side and back yards for guests to roam around and relax to the music of Jeff & Brian and the Tobacco Road band, all in socially distanced fashion. Jeff and Brian entertain on the inn’s front porch gazebo as some guests at the festival line up for a pour of wine. (Teresa Elliott photos)
