All area businesses (Locust, Midland, Stanfield, Red Cross, etc.) are invited to become vendors at the Locust Fall Festival. Contact either Pastor Tommy at First Baptist Church of Locust or Emily Jones at Locust Parks and Rec. They will send a Vendor Application Packet that explains guidelines as well as the procedures. This is a free way to promote your business in the community.

The festival will be Oct 31.
