Alabama Butterbean Festival in Pinson this weekend
By Gary Lloyd
The eighth annual Alabama Butterbean Festival is scheduled for Friday and Saturday in Pinson.
This year’s festival will likely be the largest one yet, with tens of thousands of visitors expected.
The two-day free event will feature fireworks Friday night and 14 hours of on-stage entertainment Saturday from gospel and rock performances. There will also be a new “WaterBall” attraction, camel rides, a petting zoo, and car and dog shows.
The world record-holding butterbean pot will also be at the festival. More than three tons of butterbeans, including 5,000 single pound bags, will be at the event.
“The Alabama Butterbean Festival continues to be an event where people from around the country flock to experience the life of a small town,” according to the event’s website. “Come join us this fall and help make this year’s festival even that much more special. We specialize in taking you back to the times when life was just a little more sweet, a little simpler and a lot more fun. We look forward to seeing your smiling face and making another new friend.”
