Old Tyme Festival 2012: Big crowd, good time, no trash!
The Williamsville Area Progress Committee is thankful to everyone who participated in our OldTyme Country Festival on Saturday, June 2! Attendance was estimated at 1,500 people by noon and the parking lot was full throughout the best part of the day after noon!
The Williamsville Area Progress Committee has worked hard for 12 years to help see improvements in Markham Springs Recreation Area. We are in a cost share plan with the U.S. Forest Service and hoping to see more improvements in the future. We were able to share our beautiful recreation area this weekend with the public and had our most successful festival ever! Visitors enjoyed the art show at the rock house that overlooks the beautiful mill pond area, and many vendors with artwork, gift items, food, and a lot of great entertainment! There were games for the kids, demonstrations, and a watermelon eating contest. Lots of fun!Many surrounding communities are represented in pulling together this event. Markham Springs is a cherished place with a rich history that has been enjoyed by families all over. We hear stories of individuals reminiscing about family gatherings and their enjoyment of this beautiful area and we hope to be hearing a lot more!
