Cherry Valley Fest

September 27, 2003

People at Cherry Valley's cherry festival are all exicted to see Timberlake perform, but it's not exactly the one you're used to seeing.  Randy Timberlake says his sons are excited to dance for their grandma's home crowd.

"There's a lot of energy here I think a lot of the kids are excited that Justin's little brothers are here and we have a good time doing it."

They've been coming to Cherry Valley and performing with Studio B dance troop for the past for years.  Cherry Valley Chairman David Sills says they've come a long way since the festival began 16 years ago.

"It started off on the back of a pick up truck with a few guitar pickers and a few little fishing games and we didn't even raise enough to pay off the people that bought food.

That was then, but today cherry park was rocking. This year was also the a first for 5 year-old Stephen, the youngest of the Timberlake brothers, to perform in Cherry Valley.
