The 46th annual Coterie Club of Andalusia Storybook Festival is set for April 22.

Storybook Festival Publicity Chair Kelley Nolen said this year’s theme is “Journeys of Imagination.”

The event is free and will be held at Springdale Estate.

“Balloons, face-painting and concessions will be available for a small charge,” she said.

Gates at Springdale will open at 9 a.m.

“The first set of stories begins at 9:30 a.m.,” Nolen said.

Nolen said children and their families will enjoy watching several stories come to life, as well as the opportunity to make a craft.

“Some of the featured stories include: “Where the Wild Things Are,” “The Interrupting Chicken,” and “Oh! The Places You Will Go!”

Each year hundreds of parents and children flock to the event.

The Coterie Club was formed in October 1948. It has established a long history of service to the children of the community and a reputation of concern for the welfare for the community as well.
