The festival promises to offer something for everyone, with over 40 vendors, food trucks, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, Maggie the Mayfield Cow, live music of various genres, and a community jam tent where everyone is welcome to play and sing family-friendly songs.

The event will also feature a variety of performances and activities, including Karaoke, Gigi’s Dance Academy, a Yoga class with Brandy, and a scavenger hunt with several festival vendors and downtown merchants participating. Those who complete the scavenger hunt will be entered into a drawing for prizes. Stay connected to WLAF for more details and a full list of performances.

“Travel on down to Seargeant Park where we will have Karaoke and everyone is encouraged to join in. We will have performances from Gigi’s Dance Academy, a Yoga class with Brandy, and a multitude of events for everyone of all ages,” said Joseph Hensley, Postmark music team member and acoustic jam chair.

Food options will range from BBQ, desserts, ice cream, donuts, burritos, fish, and gluten-free options. Limited tours of the historic LaFollette Post Office will be available, guided by the first postmistress herself, with access to areas not typically available to the public.
