Mayfest admission now free

There will be no admission charged to get into Jemison’s Mayfest after all.

“It will be a free event thanks to the generosity of some of the sponsors,” said Shannon Welch, assistant to Jemison Mayor Eddie Reed and organizer of the event.

Mayfest was held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, May 13 and from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday, May 14 at Jemison City Park.

Admission was priced at $3 for one night or $4 for a two-day pass, but now everyone can attend both days – Friday and Saturday for free.

The opening ceremony was scheduled to include a flag raising, the Jemison High School Blue Regiment Marching Band performing the national anthem and Mayor Eddie Reed speaking to attendees on Friday at 6 p.m.

Food and trade vendors will set up booths around the park’s walking trail, and children will enjoy inflatables and other attractions.

The list of confirmed musical acts for Mayfest includes: Stomps Hill, David Ball, Divided Seasons, Jessie Minor, Wayne Langston, Gary McKee, Steve Robertson, David Inestroza, Madison Wilson, Heaven’s Strings and Chris Porter.
