If you’re looking for some good, wholesome, not to mention free, entertainment for the kids this weekend – that even gets them outside – look no further than Coterie Club’s 43rd annual Storybook Festival. Held on the grounds of Springdale estate on East Three Notch St., this year’s event begins at 10 a.m., with gates opening at 9:30, and will feature live reenactments of Dr. Seuss favorites, “My Many Colors,” “Fox in Sox,” “Red Fish, Blue Fish” and “Green Eggs and Ham” acted out by members of the Coterie Club, the Andalusia High School Drama Club and the LBW Community College Honors Program. Crafts and a reading of “The Lorax,” by Coterie Club members will also be available. Concessions, consisting of Kool-Aide, water, fruit, popcorn and sugar cookies, will be available for $1 per item. Face painting and balloons will also be available for $1 each. The event, a fundraiser for the Coterie Club, is sponsored by Andalusia Dental Group, Covington Electric, SanBuck Insurance, Walmart, Palmer and Sons and CCB Community Bank.
