The RoseFest will be held on Saturday, May 20th in downtown Pink Hill. The RoseFest will feature two headline performers this year: Bryan Mayer and Chris Cavanaugh. We are excited to announce that new this year will be helicopter rides and an expanded, updated Kids Zone. The Kids Zone will have a number of inflatables, a balloon twister and mascots from different companies will visit during the day. It will be free to the community. 2750 pink roses are expected to be blooming this year.
Luther Ledford will be awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award. In his role at First Citizens Bank, Ledford helped create jobs in the greater Pink Hill community for thirty years. As a longtime Boy Scout leader, Ledford was a big influence to many boys that became productive men.
