This weekend ushers in the biggest party of the year in Georgetown and Quitman County– and you’re invited.
The annual Riverfest celebration is set for Saturday, April 20. The event kicks off at 10 a.m. The parade will be held at 11 a.m.
City and county leaders want you to know there is no charge to come out and enjoy the day and all the sights and sounds.
You can expect many food and craft vendors from all over the region. In addition, live entertainment will be on-going throughout the day.
Organizers always enjoy welcoming people to their town. This year, it’s extra special because the Riverfest celebration aligns with Easter weekend.
“Every year our citizens, be it from the 5-year-olds to the 90-year-olds look forward to coming down on Main Street, sitting in their chairs, watching people come and go, seeing people that you haven’t seen in a while,” says Carvel Lewis, Chairman, Georgetown-Quitman County Board of Commissioners. “Because we have a lot of vendors that are originally from here. They might live in Montgomery, Dothan, Atlanta and they come back home that weekend. And with it being Easter weekend, it will be extra special because a lot of people will be coming back to go to church on Sunday.”
