Get ready to Rock Sept. 30 & Oct 1

WINNSBORO – The big dance – Rock Around the Clock – will be happening in downtown Winnsboro on the weekend of Sept. 30 and Oct. 1, and it will have everything – lots of new entertainment, music, food, axe-throwing, a classic car show, great DJ’s, and dancing, dancing, dancing.

The Festival kicks off at 8 p.m., Friday night, Sept. 30, with its traditional Street Dance featuring the “New Local” Band.

“We’ll be feeling some fall in the air by then and that should bring out a big crowd. It’s going to be a great night to come downtown, visit with friends and neighbors and have a good time,” Fairfield Chamber President Gene Stephens said. “We have a really good band lined up. I think everybody’s going to like it and the dancing is always fun.”

“We have 30 or so vendors lined up selling everything from jewelry to crafts, and 10-14 food vendors,” Stephens added. “So there should be something for everyone,” he said.

The Saturday events start at 10 a.m. at the base of the clock showcasing live entertainment by local students throughout the morning on the main stage and a great DJ through the afternoon.

There will be a large children’s amusement area with bounce houses, carnival vendors, games, more food vendors, arts and crafts vendors, exhibition tents without sales, and souvenir sales.

Luna Trix will be there on stilts and painting faces, and for those looking for some wilder fun, there will be axe throwing.

The Classic Car Show with DJ Doug Pauley and lots of 50/50 raffles will begin at 11 a.m. on the south end of Congress Street and will culminate with the awarding of 40 trophies at 3 p.m.

Wilson Auto and other Fairfield businesses will be sponsoring the event.
