The Inglis Yankeetown Lions Club will host its 38th annual Art, Craft and Seafood Festival from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23, and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 24, on Riverside Drive in Yankeetown. Admission is free for both children and adults. Parking is free and near the festival.
The festival will host several food vendors, serving up plenty of seafood options, of course, among other delicious genres of food, including the all-American hamburgers and hot dogs. While walking through the festival, many sweet delights can be found, such as funnel cakes, kettle-corn, fresh lemonade, pretzel bites, among plenty of other classic, festival-style options.
Fun-filled activities will be available for both children and adults alike. Children can enjoy a bounce-house, sponsored by Blackwater Grill and Bar, and are also encouraged to stop by the booth occupied by the Yankeetown Safety Patrol, who are raising funds for their upcoming trip to Washington D.C. Adults are welcome to peruse and enjoy everything else the festival has to offer, including arts and crafts offered by the festival vendors, and live entertainment.
Hand-made goods will be available for sale, for those wishing to get a jump-start on their last-minute holiday shopping list. Items for sale will include jewelry, stained-glass, wooden art, ceramics and paintings, among much, much more.
Live entertainment will be sponsored by Blackwater Grill and Bar and will run for both days of the festival. For more information on the entertainment or to get involved, visit the Blackwater Grill and Bar Facebook page.
Also accessible, will be booths with information on donating blood through Lifesouth and free testing for diabetes.
All are welcome to come and enjoy the festivities offered by the event. Proceeds will go back into the community.
