The Flowertown Festival is sure to provide a weekend full of entertainment, between the shopping the food and the hullaballoo around town, but there’s something to be said for the festival’s live entertainment and performances.
This years performers include old favorites and new faces.
Kicking off the festivities once again are the Rollings Ringers. The students in the handbell choir have delighted festival guests for years. They will perform from 9 to 10:30 a.m.
Some of their classmates will continue with the entertainment starting at 11:30 a.m. when the Rollings and Alston schools music and choral groups take the stage. The young performers will end their set at 1:30 p.m.
The McGregor Baptist Church Choir will ring in the afternoon with a performance from 2 to 2:30 p.m.
Starting at 3 p.m., festival favorite Keith Miller will take the stage.

Miller released his first CD of hymns in 2010. His performance will conclude at 5 p.m., ending Friday’s entertainment.
The Bethel AME Church will get the festival going bright and early Saturday morning. The group will perform from 9 to 10:30 a.m.
At 11 a.m., Aged 2 Perfection will take the stage. The Summerville group performs oldies and has been a staple at many events around town. The group will play until 12:30 p.m.
