Georgetown Day sponsors invite participants

The 12th annual Georgetown Day Festival is scheduled for Sunday, June 8. The festival, which fills Main Street, is sponsored by Georgetown Village Restoration, Inc., the Georgetown Volunteer Fire Department, the Georgetown Lions Club, and the Georgetown Community Association.

The day features activities for adults as well as children, live music by local bands, international foods, a palate-warming chili cook-off, a beer tent, a dunking booth, artisans and vendors selling arts, crafts, clothing, and jewelry. The youngsters can have their faces painted, laugh with the clowns, take a turn in the bounce house, and more.
