The 2016 Peach Festival T-shirts can be purchased at local businesses in Chilton County.

The shirts went on sale March 18 at MorLyn’s Fine Jewelry and Gifts, Buck’s Clothing, Peach Park, Hayes Drug and Todd’s Produce (when the store opens).

The cost of the shirts are $13 each for youth sizes through adult extra-large and $15 each for 2X-3X sizes.

The price for the shirts includes tax.

Britt Culpepper with the Clanton Lions Club said all of the proceeds from the sales of the shirts go to support local charities the Clanton Lions Club supports.

The colors are turquoise, lime green, gray, pink and white.

This year’s design features an old farm truck design, which Culpepper said was an effort to show appreciation to the farmers.

“We thought the design also kind of dates how long the Peach Festival has been going on,” Culpepper said. “We tried to get the shirts out before Spring Break, so they hit the stores on [March 18].”

The Peach Festival is held the last two weeks of June.

Sponsored by the Clanton Lions Club, the festival includes the Peach Pageant, Peach Parade and Peach Auction.

Proceeds from the events benefit the club’s charitable work in the community.
