The 38th annual Nicholson Daisy Festival set this Friday and Saturday is shaping up to be the largest Daisy Festival in years.
“Our goal was definitely to make it better because it had gone downhill over the past few years,” said city councilman Mike Barfield, who along with county commissioner Dwain Smith heads up the committee putting on the event. “We have tried to really make it bigger, better and more enjoyable to encourage people to come to Nicholson.”
The festival will take place from 4 to 10 p.m. Friday and from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, with the annual parade kicking things off at 10 a.m.
Festival activities will center around the amphitheater, which will host a beauty pageant with 45 contestants at 6 p.m. Friday, as well as music and other performers.
