In just a little more than a day the 27th Dublin Peanut Festival will kick off with a parade. This Saturday, September 21, after the parade at 10 a.m. the festival will offer the crowds bounce houses, games, live music, crafts, food vendors and much more!
During the parade the Dublin Peanut Festival Royal Court will be in route down Albert Street along with local elected officials, schools, churches, scouts, fire departments and more. The festival committee asks, “Please refrain from throwing candy from vehicles and floats at the parade. We ask that you please hand out candy instead,” then added, “We want to ensure the safety of the public.”
Before the parade starts there will be registration for the car show starting at 8 a.m. Registration will end at 12 noon. The registration fee is $25. There will be trophies awarded at 4 p.m., a 50-50 drawing and Best of Show, Principal’s Choice, Best Mini, Best GM, Best Ford, Best Mopar and Best Other awards distributed.
All festival activities will take place at Dublin Primary School located at 7048 Albert Street in Dublin. Admission is free and open to the public. One of the event coordinators, Tracy Smith explained the committee hopes to raise money to make the event even bigger next year.
There will be t-shirts for sale along with a large variety of peanuts and other merchandise.
