Pan African Festival Wraps Up in Macon | News
A local Georgia festival turns sweet 16 this year and celebrated with a theme of love.
The Pan African Festival kicked off its official last day with lots of entertainment and vendors on Cherry Street in downtown Macon.
Vendors sold dresses, sunglasses, and other goodies.
Families got a chance to enjoy food, music, and activities during the free event.
"I love the food anybody that knows me knows that I love food," said Karen Doctor-Gadsen. "That is my first love and my first passion, but of course walking around and spending time with my sorority sisters and having a nice time."
Leah Robinson says the dancers were the highlight of the day.
"They had some African dancers earlier and they had some beautiful costumes. My mom was saying the costumes were beautiful and people were dancing with them, but I didn't quite have the courage to get up with them and start dancing with them.I like watching other people do that," said Robinson.
The Pan African Festival wraps up Saturday evening with an outdoor showing of, "The Blind Side."
