The Making of SugarFest
Years ago the City of Arab had a fireworks show hosted by a local citizen. But, alas, there have been no fireworks lighting the sky above Arab for many, many years. Recently, a group a citizens decided to change that. But before they knew it, other ideas for the community were being thrown out left & right: an Arts & Crafts Show, a Kid’s Area, a Foodcourt, a Classic Car Show, a 5k Race, a Beauty Pageant, a Bake-Off, live music, until the fireworks show had grown into a one day community festival! But what to call it? Is it a music festival? An Arts & Crafts Show? What will it grow to be? What is the one thing those all have in common? It’s in the South and nothing is sweeter than the South, right sugar? And there it was! SugarFest! Taking place annually on the Saturday of Labor Day at Arab City Park, we hope you will make plans to attend!
