UNFORTUNATELY THIS YEAR WE HAD TO CHANGE THINGS UP DUE TO THE COVID-19 VIRUS.  We are currently unable to plan our FULL festival activities as originally planned in the fall but we will still be sponsoring three events in September 2020, at the Steel Shed (French Santee Road) in Jamestown SC.  Our festivities promises to be a weekend full of entertainment for the whole family.  We will kick the weekend off Friday night, September 25th at 7:00 PM with our first ever Drive-In movie night at the Steel Shed which is free to all with the exception of our concession stand.  This year we wanted to give every the opportunity to get out and be competitive so we added a 5K race to our already famous 10K Gator Run & Walk Race which will be Saturday, September 26th.  The 5K race will start at 8:15 AM while the 10K race will start at 8:30 AM, followed by our Beauty Pageant which starts at 11:00 AM.  Although unforeseen circumstances have forced our hand this year and we will NOT be having our other annual festival activities, we still hope to provide the community with something fun for all.
