JASPER — Downtown Jasper has a sweet tooth.
The 8th annual Sweets n the Streets Festival is set for Saturday from noon to 8 p.m. at Jasper City Park, with the annual Christmas parade taking place at 6 p.m.
The parade will include a contest with judging of the various floats, golf carts and entries into the parade.
Vendor fees have been waived for the festival by the Hamilton County Chamber of Commerce in an effort to attract businesses to Hamilton County and the event.
The Chamber instead is accepting donations in lieu of vendor fees in the spirit of Christmas.
There also has been a storefront decorating contest for Hamilton County businesses located downtown in an effort to encourage participation and business attraction in the community.
The winner of the contest will be announced during the festival. There will be one winner from Jasper, one from Jennings as well as one from White Springs chosen.
Photos of storefronts may be submitted through direct Facebook message to the Hamilton County Chamber of Commerce Facebook Page, with the community voting on the winner.
