Peanut festival Saturday in Williston

-A A +A
By Carolyn Risner

In a nutshell, you are guaranteed a day of fun this Saturday when Heritage Park is lined with vendors, entertainment and thousands of visitors at the 21st Annual Central Florida Peanut Festival. Originally a project of the Williston Woman’s Club to salute the local peanut industry, the Festival is now sponsored by the Williston Area Chamber of Commerce as its signature event.  For nearly a year, Chamber members have planned how to make this year’s celebration bigger and better. The day kicks off at 9 a.m. at the Pavilion in the center of the park with opening ceremonies.  For the rest of the day, scheduled entertainers will perform at the Pavilion and the Gazebo, as well as around the park. There will be music, dancing and at 3 p.m., comedy hypnosis by Rich Alexander.  Always a treat is the Baby Peanut Contest, set for 10:15 a.m. Parents and grandparents will ooh and ahh over the cute little tykes in their Sunday best. At 1 p.m., the search begins for the Little King and Queen, who will be named at 2 p.m. These little darlings will be modeling their casual country western attire as they meet the judges and the audience.
