Tammy Briley, Greenwood Parks Director, said “It turned out to be a great festival!”

Of course, there are many people behind the scenes helping put this event on for the community.

The Chamber of Commerce also put on the 5K Run where even the Greenwood Firefighters did the run in full firefighting gear along with hundreds more people. In addition, both the Greenwood Fire Department and the Greenwood Police Department were at the festival to meet people and let kids get their pictures taken.

Enjoy the photos of this year’s event and be sure to attend the next one in 2020.
