Published 12:02 am Saturday, May 5, 2012

There are 85 vendors participating in today’s Three Notch Market arts and crafts festival, sponsored by the Andalusia Junior Woman’s Club.

The event begins at 9 a.m., and local talent will perform throughout the day.

Admission to the festival, which will be on the grounds of Springdale, is free.



For the safety of those attending the market, East Three Notch Street will be closed from Oak Street (between CCB and Cost Plus) to Stanley Avenue.

All businesses in that area are accessible from streets behind their businesses, Mike Bowlan, assistant police chief, said.

Several churches are running shuttles from parking areas at Packer Field, the Covington County Board of Education, Andalusia High School, BB&T, Johnson Park, Cotton Tractor and Andalusia Full Gospel Tabernacle. The cost for shuttle rides is $1 per person.

Parking also is available on the court square, at the Farmers Market, and at First Baptist Church.

Handicap parking will be at Dr. Boyington’s office.



The Three Notch Market 5K run and walk will begin at 9 a.m. at Andalusia High School. The event is a project of the AHS volleyball team.



Local folk artist Rick Long is donating the proceeds of T-shirts featuring his painting of Andalusia High School to the AJWC for its charitable causes, most of which benefit children.



Tickets to tonight’s Little Big Town concert are $15, and are available at the gate.

The outdoor concert will be held in a fenced area between Springdale and City Hall. Food vendors participating in Three Notch Market will be open through the concert. No coolers will be allowed.

Gates open at 4; the concert is expected to start at 6:30.
