On the south side of the county, the Roopville Homecoming Festival will feature arts, crafts and food vendors, kids’ games, rides, live music and a car show that doesn’t close until 6 p.m.
On the north side, Temple Founders Day salutes Robert Henry Temple with a pancake breakfast, kids’ train ride, dunking booth, food and local vendors. The festival is open until 9 p.m.
Eclectic Live!, inspired by the University of West Georgia’s art and literary magazine, takes the stage at The Amp at Adamson Square Saturday night at 7 p.m. The free event is described as a “live version” of the magazine and will feature art, poetry and music.
