The Johnston Peach Blossom Festival is now taking applications for individuals, organizations or businesses interested in being a part of the Festival’s parade.
The Festival will be held May 1, 2010, in Johnston, known as the Peach Capital of the World.
Last year, thousands of patrons descended on Johnston to enjoy the day set aside to honor the peach industry, which has been so important in the development of the area. Each year, the Town goes all out with the Festival to remind citizens about the peach industry and to open its arms to visitors.
Those interested in participating in the parade should contact Parade Chairman Roger Lamb, (803) 275-0438, 505 Roland Ave., Johnston, SC, 29832.
For more information on the Festival, please contact Debra Aston, (803) 275-2345, or Tyra Miller, (803) 275-3264.
The Johnston Development Corporation, a non-profit volunteer organization, sponsors the Festival. The Corporation works to aid the community in areas such as economic development, education, recreation, historic preservation, tourism, scientific and cultural opportunities, and continued promotion of Johnston.
