Atmore celebrates 40 years of Mayfest

Published 6:17pm Sunday, May 5, 2013

An unseasonably cool day welcomed hundreds of visitors to Tom Byrne Park Saturday to take part in the 40th annual Mayfest event.

This year’s festival included Mayfest staples the Pooch Parade and Beautiful Baby Contest, but also featured new entertainment like this year’s headliners, 31 South Band.

Atmore Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Sheryl Vickery said she was pleased with the turnout Saturday.

“It’s been a good day,” she said. “I’m glad the weather worked out.”
