The 36th Annual Chapin Labor Day Festival And Parade Kicks Off This Weekend

The 36th Annual Chapin Labor Day Festival & Parade Kicks Off This Weekend! Thousands of Midlands residents are expected to flock to Chapin this weekend for the annual end of summer festival and parade, presented by this year's Grand Sponsor, Lexington Medical Center. Beginning on Saturday morning is the Walk or Run a Crooked 5K at Crooked Creek Park. Registration is at 7 AM and the race is at 8 AM. The 5K will benefit Crooked Creek's senior programs and Meals on Wheels. 


Sunday night Blues on Beaufort Street starts with a street party at 6 PM and an outdoor concert beginning at 6:30 PM with 2014 Chapin Champion, Logan Baldwin followed by Anthony Charles and the Blues Dolphins. Admission is free and concert-goers are encouraged to bring lawn chairs. Refreshments will be available from Carolina Cookin' and Tipsy Toad Tavern. 


On Labor Day Monday, the morning gets started off with the ever-popular parade at 9:30 am. This year's Grand Marshalls will be Chapin twins, Brett and Jacob Rhoad who are being recognized for their efforts in supporting and increasing awareness in the fight against muscular dystrophy. With the parade theme "Chapin Proud", the route this year will start from the GIS parking lot and go straight down Chapin Road to the Bi-Lo shopping center. Right after the parade, live entertainment will take place on the Mid-Carolina Electric Cooperative Stage including musical performances by Shelby Raye and The Keith Dominick Band and also a Cupcake Eating Contest sponsored by Bailey's Sweet Shoppe. If you are interested in the contest, just show up at 11 AM and you must be 18 years or older. We are very proud to say that our very own Exit Midlands Realty is sponsoring the Children's Area on Clark Street. Bring the kids over for all kinds of fun activities and games. In the Mt. Horeb parking lot will be a classic car show hosted by Newberry Car Buffs and Taylor's Automotive. The Associated Model Railroads of Columbia will have model trains on display in the American Legion Post 193 in the old firehouse. The Chapin Branch Library Annual Book Sale will be held in the Chapin Town Hall Community Room until 2:30 PM. There will also be plenty of street vendors selling food, arts and crafts, and clothing items. So come on out and enjoy all the activities this weekend & be "Chapin Proud"!
