BATESVILLE, AR (KAIT) - The City of Batesville is hosting their first ever Southern Food Festival on Saturday in downtown Batesville.
According to Shannon Haney, executive director of Main Street Batesville, the Southern Food Festival is a celebration of two projects the community has been working hard on to enhance downtown.
Haney said they're kicking the festival off with a dedication of the Maxfield Park.
The park was built out of recycled native stone left over from old downtown buildings.
She said they will have vendors and a variety of food in the street followed by entertainment and live music.
The dedication of Maxfield Park will begin at 11 a.m; followed by a ribbon cutting ceremony for the streetscape project at 3 p.m.
