After the event was cancelled in 2014, a little rain didn’t stop spectators from filling the park for the return of Liberty Day on Saturday in Cedar Bluff.
There were over 50 vendors, selling everything from woodcrafts, clothing, jewelry, musical instruments and household items, to food of all types. New to the venue this year was a professional BMX Trick/Stunt Show for all ages.
The Lions Club will offered mops and brooms made by employees at industries for the blind and visually impaired, and also sold candles with profits going to send a Cherokee County student to a summer camp for diabetic children and teens.
The Cherokee County Historical Museum also displayed a booth. The antique car show attracted almost 100 vintage vehicles in addition to Motorcycles and Antique tractors.
Several local musicians provided the entertainment throughout the day with Preston Summerville, Them Dirty Roses and Centre’s own Shane Givens and of course the days event was closed out with Fireworks over Weiss Lake, one of the largest shows in the state.
Mayor Tammy Crane and Council wish to extend a huge thank you to everyone who had a part, large or small, in making this year’s event a success!
