Last weekend’s weather was pretty close to perfect for the 10th annual Dawson County Arts Council Spring Fling Festival.

 

“We couldn’t have asked for a better day,” said Andrea McKinzie, who was manning the Dawson County Humane Society booth at the festival. “It’s absolutely beautiful outside.”

 

The two-day event was held at the Bowen Center for the Arts Saturday and Sunday and featured dozens of vendors and artists from across the Southeast offering made-in-America arts and crafts, food, music and rides, as well as a large selection of gardening supplies.

 

As in years past, the children’s area was a popular attraction.

 

Dressed in full clown costumes, Dawson County High School Juniorettes Rima Momim and Delany Enrico kept the little ones entertained.

 

“We have pony rides, a sand box and face painting,” said Momim, as she directed the crowd to the area and sold raffle tickets for their organization.

 

Organizers said several hundred people attended the event that raises money for the Dawson County Arts Council and its community initiatives.
