Thursday, July 18-Saturday, July 20
The 47th annual Porter Peach Festival is almost here with plenty of activities for all ages, including a 5k run, car show, arts and crafts and more in downtown Porter. Every year to celebrate the peach crop, Porter comes alive with things to see and do. Visitors can pick peaches, enter the frog-jumping contest, cheer on cute animals at the pet show, or check out the locals’ chops in the talent competition. Make sure you see who is crowned Miss Peach, Miss Peach Blossom and Miss Peach Bud this year. Then on Saturday afternoon, you can head on over to the Peach Parade to see the floats. There will be free ice cream and peaches while supplies last. The festival will run from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. on Thursday, July 18, and Friday, July 19, and 7 a.m.-10 p.m. on Saturday, July 20. Admission to events is free. For more information visit www.porterpeachfestivals.com.
