SNELLVILLE – The Snellville Days Festival is returning to T.W. Briscoe Park May 5 and 6.
Crowds of more than 30,000 are expected to pack the two-day arts and crafts festival to get a glimpse of the diverse talents of local artisans and entertainers.
The event is from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. May 5 and from 12 to 5 p.m. May 6.
There will be a free shuttle from First Baptist Church from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday.
Plenty of food options will be available from local civic and non-profit organizations that will be serving up everything from barbecue, hamburgers, hot dogs, funnel cakes, to peanuts and popcorn.
Some of the best local entertainment – including school student acts - will fill the stage near the food court all day Saturday and Sunday.
Wolves of the World are new this year and will be presenting the mystical, enigmatic wolf pack. The show features a hero wolf that saves a young girl from drowning, showing that wolves can be intelligent and empathetic animals.
Also debuting this year is Wildlife Wendy. Wendy and her tropical birds provide an up close and personal encounter with the most entertaining species of the bird world. Audiences will be intrigued by the majestic macaws as they present their physical abilities and personalities. Roaming the grounds will be Robocars, a range of brightly colored, life-sized, transforming robot vehicles. Operator driven, they walk and drive, creating excitement and photo opportunities for families.
Don't miss the Walking TreeMan and Cowboy Woody. Barely distinguishable from real trees, Walking TreeMan moves slowly and deliberately down the street, and can be seen from 150 yards away. There will be also someone dressed as a 10-foot-tall Woody from “Toy Story” performing lasso tricks.
Dozens of arts and crafts vendors will be selling their wares and information about local nonprofit and city organizations will also be on hand.
