WINNSBORO — It’s time to rock around the clock again, Winnsboro!
With the rain and flooding at the beginning of the month, Winnsboro’s annual Rock Around the Clock festival was postponed and has now been combined with Pumpkin Fest.
Festivities will begin around 5 p.m. and continue through 11 p.m. Friday before picking back up Saturday. While the originally scheduled parade was cancelled, there will be plenty of activities in its place. Pumpkin Fest will include trick-or-treating and several food contests.
Following the Pumpkin Fest events, Rock Around the Clock will take over. Starting at 8 p.m., there will be a street dance. Although the originally scheduled band was booked for these dates, the Chamber of Commerce was able to bring back the Flashback Party Band.
Saturday’s events will include a car and truck show which begins at 8 a.m. and will include several vehicles that have picked up national awards. The main stage will be rocking all day long and will feature local groups as well as school groups.
Some of the attractions will include arts and crafts vendors, an inflatable slide, Thomas the Choo Choo, and a free petting zoo next to The Herald Independent’s office.
