OppFest to feature local entertainment

Published 12:21 am Friday, October 16, 2015


OppFest is just two weeks away, but organizers say it’s set to be one of the best yet.

The streets of downtown Opp will close on Fri., Oct. 30, at 5 p.m.

“Vendors will set up at 5 p.m.,” said organizer Pam Potter. “Then we will have entertainment from 7 until 10.”

Potter said this is the first year that auditions were held for Friday night entertainment.

“We will have some local talent,” she said.

On Saturday, Taylor Weeks, Charlene Payne, E-Town, Ethan King and Charlotte White will perform.

Potter said arts and crafts vendors will line Main Street and Covington Avenue, there will be trackless rain and inflatables, and the LA Cruisers car show will be set up as usual.

“This is their 20th car show,” she said. “We still have plenty of spots left for arts and crafts vendors.”

Booths are $25 for arts and crafts vendors and $75 for food.

Saturday’s events will be from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m.

Additionally, Potter said the citywide trick or treat will coincide with OppFest and will be from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m.

“We try to do that every year, but it’s the first time we’ve had it with OppFest,” she said.
