Poultry Festival for the Lexington County   Leave a comment

members of the Leesville Merchants Association flocked together to hatch the concept of a town festival. It was Sara Shealy, famous throughout the region for eggs-traordinary fried chicken served in her Batesburg-Leesville restaurant, who courageously proposed the

development of a Poultry Festival for the Lexington County community. After

much clucking and crowing, the head rooster called for a vote and the Poultry

Festival was hatched.

What better theme to spotlight the largest agri-business in South Carolina –

a $1 BILLION industry that employs thousands in production, processing,

marketing of eggs, broilers, turkeys, pigeons, quail and spring chickens!

Lexington County; home of Columbia Farms, Saluda County, headquarters

of Amick Farms and Gentry’s Poultry Company, and Aiken County are

among the state’s top broiler producers.

The first festival, staged in 1987 called the Ridge Poultry Festival, attracted over

20,000 visitors to the Twin Cities. In 1989, the event, experiencing growing pains changed its name to the South Carolina Poultry Festival to mirror the stampede of Palmetto State citizens who streamed into the town to partake of food, fun, music, crafts, and fireworks. Festival goers have clucked together through the ensuring eggs-travaganza and have packed the weekend population of Batesburg-Leesville to 100,000 plus!!!

This is a great weekend to bring the kids out and enjoy…more info here

Friday, August 28. Remember the Titans. To get everyone geared up for football season, we’re going to show Remember the Titans at Screen on the Green! Remember the Titans is based on the true story of the explosive events that took place in Alexandria, Virginia in 1971 when African-American football coach Herman Boone was hired to guide an integrated but racially polarized high school team–the T.C. Williams Titans. Angry, stubborn and a rigid taskmaster, Boone faces a cool reception from the team’s players as well as an awkward relationship with assistant coach Bill Yoast, a local white man with seniority and a tradition of winning who was bypassed for the job. It’s made clear that Bill has feelings of animosity for having to be an assistant under a black man. As the two men learn to overcome their ignorance and bigotry and realize that they have much in common–integrity, honor, and a strong work ethic–they work together to transform a group of angry, unfocused players into a dynamic winning team of responsible young men. In the process, they also unite a divided community and ensure that Virginia will always “Remember the Titans.” The movie is 1 hour and 53 minutes long and will begin at dusk, weather permitting. Visit Lake Carolina for more information.
