Salisbury is preparing to celebrate its favorite hometown soft drink during the Cheerwine Festival, Saturday, May 19, in downtown Salisbury from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Cheerwine fans will enjoy great Southern food, shopping for Cheerwine merchandise, a Kids’ Zone, a beer garden and local craft vendors, thanks to sponsors, F&M Bank and Hotwire Communications.
No festival is complete without rockin’ live music. Several bands are scheduled to perform throughout the day at the Festival:
- Cassette Rewind, 12:30 - 1:30 p.m.
- Gump Fiction, 2:00 - 3:00 p.m.
