BLAKELY, Ga. (WDHN) — Blakely is gearing up for the 51st annual Kolomoki Festival this weekend.

In the past, the festival used to be an arts and crafts festival held on the square and since it moved to the park in the 90s, it has become more attractive.

The festival will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and it will feature pontoon boat rides, archery, arts and crafts and food vendors, and live performances from the Bo Henry band and Blakely mass choir, and more.

Kolomoki Park Manager Lauren Bryant said the city shows up in huge numbers for this event and this year could be bigger than ever due to missing out last year.

“We want everyone to come out and enjoy just being outside its supposed to be a beautiful day after we get past all of this rain this week, so we hope everyone will bring their families out and enjoy a day getting some fresh air,” Bryant said.

Festival-goers will have to pay a parking fee.
