Ramseur’s 27th Annual “A Day On Main Street” Festival, which will be held in Ramseur’s downtown area on Saturday, Oct. 17, from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
New this year, there will be two stages to make room for even more performers. Attendees are encouraged to bring a chair or blanket and stay for the day. Stage 1 will be located at Roller Mill Hill and feature locals Gracie Kirkland, Men of Faith, SWB Ensemble, and Nu-Blu. At 2:15 p.m., car show winners will be announced, followed by the pageant contest. Nu-Blu will perform again at 3:45 p.m., followed by the Randolph County Honor Guard presentation, which will explain the symbolism behind each part of the Honor Guard’s ceremony.
Stage 2 will be located at Jordan Memorial United Methodist Church and features the Senior Steppers, Candy Brooks Dance Studio, Brooke McBride, First Christian Church Praise Band and the Trinity Quartet.
This year, the festival will host the Second Annual Miss/Master Ramseur pageant for ages 4-6, 7-9, 10-13, and 14-17. The entry fee is only $10. Deadline to register is Friday, Oct. 16. For car lovers, there will be a one-of-a-kind auto show near Roller Mill Hill, featuring antique and hot rods, along with motorcycles and antique tractors. There will be prizes awarded as well. The entry fee for each vehicle is just $10. Entry forms for the pageant and car show may be found on the Ramseur Chamber of Commerce website. www.ramseurchamberofcommerce.
Back again this year will be the U.S. Air Force SuperCar and Interactive exhibit, centrally located in the parking lot of Scott Floyd Appliances.
“The festival should be our biggest festival ever, and we will be accepting applications until the day before the event or until all spaces are full,” said one of the festival organizers, Kerri Lindley. “We have vendors coming from as far away as Eagle Springs, King, and Clyde.”
The festival will also have pony rides for the kids, along with “Looks Like Fun,” which will be back this year with Super Inflatables. The cost is $1 for each run through. All day wristbands are available for $10. Local churches will also have games for children.
Parking will be available at Leonard Park, and local surrounding business and churches. No pets, firearms or alcohol will be allowed at the festival.
