The 23rd annual Cleburne SpringFest is from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.
Ron Lindsey, president of the Downtown Cleburne Association, which hosts the annual event, said he is looking forward to another successful year with the Ducky Derby, a petting zoo and a car show as part of the day-long festival.
“Vendors will be wrapped around the courthouse, down South Main Street and in the Wright Plaza parking lot,” he said.
Items for sale include jewelry, clothes, handmade crafts, hand-painted birdhouses, sand art, hair bows and accessories, fair food, watches and an assortment of other items. For vendor inquiries, call Lindsey at 817-556-3700.
The Ducky Derby event, slated for competitors of all ages, will be held behind Cleburne First Financial Bank on Main Street. Held by the Buffalo Creek Association, the event kicks off at noon with the corporate duck parade. The corporate duck contest begins at 12:30 p.m., and the public Ducky Derby begins at 1 p.m. Questions should be directed to BCA at 817-556-2195.
Cleburne Fire Department is scheduled to be at the Ducky Derby with activities for children. The Layland Museum will also host family-friendly programs throughout the day.
Kelley’s Collision Center across from First Financial Bank is hosting a car show from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. A live band is scheduled to play and free food for the public will be handed out at noon. For car show inquiries, call Strawberry’s Garage at 917-641-8660.
The Wright Plaza parking lot will again be home to the kid’s zone, where a DJ and live entertainment is scheduled throughout the day on stage. A trampoline bungee jump, petting zoo and family-friendly activities will be offered.
“We did that last year and wanted to go ahead and repeat it,” Lindsey said.
While at the kid’s zone, students should be supervised by an adult at all times, he said.
