The annual Spring Fling Celebration is held the first Saturday in May at the Farmer's Market from 10 am to 5 pm. Arts and crafts vendors come from all over, and the day is filled with wonderful arts and crafts including handmade baby shoes, jewelry and beads, bird houses and feeders, seed bombs, handmade wooden crosses, hair bows and halos, candles and face painting to name a few. There is also great food available at the celebration. Typically on the menu are corn dogs, funnel cakes, twisted taters, brisket tacos, chicken strips, sno-cones, cotton candy, kettle corn and much, much more!

We will have a variety of bounce houses, a cornhole tournament, live music, dance acts, the Ford F-100 Truck Show and so much more!!!
