The 26th annual Historic Constitution Square Festival will feature many of the popular artists and artisans from years past as well as new offerings in the food booths. The entertainment is just a tad smaller this year, says park manager Brenda Willoughby.
"With the state budget cuts, and city and county cuts, we're still managing to have a great festival," Willoughby notes. "I usually break even, which is good, considering we operate by fees, and city and county funding.
"I've cut back this year on entertainment. It's still a great lineup, and I've focused on the wealth of resources in this area. But I'd like to make a little money this year. ... Visitors will not see a visible difference - we'll continue the way we have every year."
Returning to the main stage this year are Billyblues Saturday night; the Danville Pipe Band, Aprile Hunt and First Baptist Male Chorus Saturday afternoon; the Tumbleweed Line Dancers Friday evening; and Raison D'Etre Sunday afternoon.
