PINSON — The second largest festival in the state of Alabama was in Pinson Friday, Oct. 2, and Saturday, Oct. 3.
The 15th annual Butterbean Festival was a little smaller this year, due to coronavirus restrictions. Mayor Hoyt Sanders said there were fewer vendors but larger vendor booths. Social distancing was required. The city had safety plans approved by the Jefferson County Health Department, according to Sanders.
On both days of the festival, there was a carnival and there were artists showcases, including singers, bands and performers. Events on Saturday included the Alabama Butterbean Festival 5K, the Pet Parade.
The festival takes place along Main Street in Pinson.
