The 95th Branstetter Park Festival and Homecoming was well attended. Although, a few people may have stayed home due to the dark storm clouds looming overhead. Those attending were entertained by the scheduled music and the impromptu shade tree pickers as well as the craft booths, great food, and children’s games on Saturday.

On Sunday, the crowd heard a message preached by Bro. Willie Dale Westmoreland and heard Southern Gospel music by Chloe and Kolten.
