Halloween activities and buzz about the election have kept most of Emanuel County preoccupied lately, but there’s still something big coming up— the inaugural Cotton Blossom Festival in Twin City!
This Saturday, November 6, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at and around the Twin City Welcome Center downtown, there will be food, games, crafts, and more as part of the first-ever festival.
The Cotton Blossom Festival is part of the City of Twin City’s year-long celebration of its 100-year existence. Named by Helen Logue of Twin City earlier this year, the festival aims to celebrate agriculture as an economic driver in Emanuel County with cotton being the primary crop. Without agriculture, Summit and Graymont—and eventually Twin City—would not exist.
Moving forward, the Cotton Blossom Festival will be held the first Saturday of November.
