Pecan festival is Saturday in Milner

The annual Milner Pecan Festival, set for this Saturday May 18, features new kinds of fun for everybody, according to organizer Tracey Alford. Alford, a member of the city council who started the festival several years ago to raise money for improvements to City Park, said the festival will be open until 4 p.m., with the ‘Run Like a Nut’ at 8 a.m. at Milner Baptist Church and the car show from 9-1 in the Lighthouse Restaurant parking lot. The ‘Goodtime Sounds’ group with DJ Jeff McDuffey, Community Ambulance director, will perform without charge in the morning hours. The Party Time Band, which also is donating the time, will offer music from 1-4 p.m., Alford said. New this year is the Pecan Pie and Cake contest, ‘with cash prizes,’ Alford noted. Vendors of food, crafts, clothing and other items now number 34. A balloon man and ‘slime-maker’ highlight the Kid Zone, she added. The Lamar County High football team will supervise a ‘football throw’ activity also. ’There are so many people and businesses who have given time and donations. They will all be thanked publicly after the festival,’ Alford added.
