Claytor Lake Festival promises to be the best yet

The 12th Annual Claytor Lake Festival on Saturday, June 13, from 7 a.m. to dusk, promises to be the best one yet.
The festival committee has planned a wonderful day at the lake that includes:
• Arts and crafts vendors
• Food vendors
• Wine tasting featuring Peaks of Otter Winery and Rebec Winery and Vineyard
• A car show including antique vehicles
• Antique fire trucks by Old Dominion Historical Fire Society
• The annual Yearout Fishing Tournament and Essay Contest
• Radio controlled cars and airplanes
• A variety of children’s activities
• Sand sculpture contest
• Native American demonstrations and a performance by the Red Fire Singers and a youth Monacan dance group in full regalia.
• Entertainment, including Glen Shelton, the Billy Crawford Band, Southern Nights, the Rock’n Cruisers, 2008 Star of the Blue Ridge Sharon Edwards and contest finalists Danny Lawson and Sherry Turbeville, and two mini performances of “The King and I” by the Wohlfahrt Haus Players
• A Family Fun Run
• And the ever-popular grand finale fireworks show by Grucci, which begins at dark.
The festival, held at Claytor Lake State Park at Dublin, begins at 10 a.m. and ends with the fireworks show. Cumulus Broadcasting will kick off the entertainment with a live radio remote.
Entry to the Park is free, however there is a $5 parking fee.
A shuttle service will be available from the Wal-Mart Parking lot in Dublin to the State Park for the fireworks show. The shuttle will begin picking up riders at 6 p.m. It will return to Wal-Mart after the fireworks conclude.
Use of the shuttle buses is encouraged in order to reduce traffic congestion and reduce the amount of time exiting the park.
The Festival is planned by the Claytor Lake Festival Committee, Claytor Lake State Park, the Fine Arts Center for the New River Valley, and Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce.
