Get your blackberry fix Saturday in Jasper

Jasper — The 5th Annual Wild Blackberry Festival is this Saturday, June 14, in downtown Jasper from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the City Park with a variety of activities for young and old alike.

A pancake breakfast will be served from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., hosted by the Crossroads Fire Department and the Hamilton County Humane Society will be putting on a Dog Contest from 10-11 a.m. They’ll be looking for best trick, best dressed, best obedient, and owner and pet look-alike. There will also be a classic car exhibit, as well as antique engines.

Entertainment will be provided by Teddy MacElvis and the Legends, while you enjoy stopping at all the arts and crafts vendors. The kids will have plenty to enjoy, including face painting, pony rides, rock climbing, bounce houses, games and much more.

For the adventurous, take advantage of an historical church tour or even a tour of the old jail.

Be sure to pick up some homemade blackberry jams, jellies and cobblers, and don’t forget to stock up on some fresh blackberries to take home with you.

This event is sponsored by the Hamilton County Tourist Development Council, PotashCorp White Springs, Hardee’s of Jasper and Hitchcock’s Foodway. Parking is free. Just look for the signs. For more information, please call 386-792-2725.
