DENHAM SPRINGS -- There will be plenty for shoppers to buy and see during Spring Fest this weekend.
And if you’re not in the mood to spend money, there will be plenty of sounds as well — all free of charge.
Spring Fest, which is slated to hit the Denham Springs Antique Village April 27, will feature live musical entertainment on two stages at Train Station Park and Centerville Street.
Entertainment on the Centerville stage will come from Vintage, the Odyssey Academy of Dance, Surrender All, Doc Hearl and Anita Leblanc, and the King Creole Orchestra. Healing Place Church will also provide “continuous music” at Train Station Park, organizer Al Bye said.
In addition, a DJ will play extra tunes on Mattie Street in front of Old City Hall, which will be converted into “Arts Avenue” for the afternoon.
Spring Fest, sponsored by the Denham Springs Merchants Association and Pelican State Credit Union, is scheduled to run from 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. throughout the downtown Denham Springs area.
It will feature more than 160 vendors on Range Avenue and Railroad Avenue, and they’ll be offering a variety of items, including furniture, collectibles, folk art, jewelry, rugs, glass, textiles, pottery, gardening items and architectural antiques.
The free, family-friendly event invites people of all ages to check out games, rides, food booths, entertainment and businesses in the Antique Village. In addition to the free live music, there will be a fun zone for kids, artist demonstrations and other festival activities.
