Spring Water Festival special attractions

A display of unique and original pottery will be on exhibit in the Williamston Municipal Center Exhibit Hall during the Spring Water Festival. The pottery production is a joint venture between Anderson master potter Ross Bryant and local artist/ art teacher Thomas Addison, and features a pottery glaze that is unique to the local area. The glaze on the pottery pieces is a homemade mixture which is created from the “chalybeate” or mineral spring water collected from the mineral spring in the park. The color on the pottery is derived from the high concentration of iron carbonate, which has been a well-known feature of the spring since its discovery in the late 1830’s by West Allen Williams.

There will be a Little Miss and Master Spring Water Festival Pageant held Aug 24th in the Municipal Center Auditorium. This is a fundraiser pageant for The Mill Town Players and Spring Water Festival projects. Deadline for entry is Monday, August 19.
The pageant is for girls ages are 0-18 boys age 0-7. Entry fee is $35. No pageant dresses needed. Only a summer dress or summer outfit. Every participant receives a crown. For info sheet and application please email wking5670@charter.net or call 2300157.

Bob Seymore of Atlanta will bring the fantastic world of STATUARY back to Williamston depicting the town’s founder West Allen Williams.

The 2019 Spring Water Festival T-Shirt is white with blue logo and features the Envision Williamston mural design by Thomas Addison. Addison’s mural design of “Unbroken Chain of Mineral Spring Water”, was brought to life by Palmetto High Art students Kerrigan Campbell and Rebecca Stephen, under the direction of Art teacher Gregg Davis, for Envision Williamston. The mural was the fifth placed in Williamston over the last year and can be seen on the side of the building located across from Calvary Church and near the new Anderson Drive “Gateway Welcome Sign”.
