Contributing Editor 

  As an homage to the yellow dust that will soon cover nearly every outdoor surface in Henry County, the fifth annual Yellow Pollen Street Festival will be held this Saturday, March 16 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in downtown Hampton.

Attendees at the 2010 Yellow Pollen Festival enjoyed crafts, exhibits and festival food.                                       File photo

  The Yellow Pollen Festival is a street fair that features local craft vendors, artisans and festival food. More than 80 food and craft vendors will line East Main Street and there will be a honeybee demonstration in the train depot by local beekeeper Tom Bonnell, as well as plenty of activity for the kids, including bounce houses and games.

  The Atlanta Motor Speedway Pace Car is expected to be on display and for the first time, the Mid Georgia Model Railroad Club will set up their display during the festival. A solar astronomer will be on hand and festivalgoers will also enjoy music by DJs JT and Jimmy Smith.

  According to Mainstreet director Candy Franklin, there will also be exotic poultry, spinning and knitting demonstrations, entertainment and plenty of family fun to welcome spring. BloodSouth Blood Mobile will also be accepting donations.

  The festival is sponsored by the Hampton Downtown Development Authority and Main Street.
