Springfest brings folks to downtown Russell Springs
In June 2 Issue

The annual Russell Springs' Springfest went off without a hitch this past Friday and Saturday as it brought hundreds of folks to Main St. for live music, family activities and games, car and tractor shows, pageants, food and much more.

"Everyone had their own assignment and everything went off real smooth," said Larry Skaggs, president of the Downtown Revitalization Committee. "We had no major glitches and had a good turnout."

Skaggs said he gives credit to the committee for all their hard work in putting on the festival as well as the Ol Boys Toys car club, who this year hosted their third annual "Pride in Your Ride" show during the festival. Skaggs said it was the car club that began the Springfest tradition and that the committee just picked up on it and helped make it what it is today.

"We had a perfect day with beautiful weather," Skaggs said. "The turnout was wonderful and it was a team effort in putting it on. I was really impressed."

Skaggs wished to thank VP Denver Wilson, Secretary Carlotta Robertson, Treasurer Lu Shaw and board members Billy Grider, Chuck Gossett, David Harris, Don Shaw and Jane HeHart as well as Mayor Hollis DeHart and the city council, Richard Roy, Jeramy Coffey, David and Suzanne Harris and PR man John Carter with the Russell County Tourism Commission as well as all city employees and Springfest volunteers.

"We also want to thank all of our downtown merchants," he said. "It was a total team effort."

Skaggs said he cited the various types of music as one reason Springfest had something for everyone, young or old.

The many food and item vendors, inflatables and various other children's games served as all-day entertainment for the many folks that visited or spent their entire day.

"Main St. is on the upswing and we want everyone to be a part of it," Skaggs said.

Skaggs said the committee was already planning this year's fall festival which will be near the end of October. While he couldn't announce the plans just yet he said the haunted house this year will be replaced with another event, but it was something he couldn't yet disclose because it is still in the planning stages.
