Laurel Hill Arts & Heritage Festival expands spring event

Published: Thursday, April 24, 2014 at 06:00 PM.

Laurel Hill School parents and students will sell beverages for an upcoming field trip to New Orleans.

Crestview Boy Scout Troop 773 members will sell Scout Cobbler, a dessert they will cook in a Dutch oven over a campfire.

The First Presbyterian Church of Crestview's men's group will grill burgers and hotdogs to raise money for food baskets for needy families.

The Laurel Hill Presbyterian Church's desserts, baked goods and plant sales will benefit community outreach programs such as providing school supplies for needy Laurel Hill School students.

New component

The festival, hosted by the Laurel Hill and Crestview Presbyterian Churches, is timed a half-year from the fall Hobo Festival, the churches' pastor, the Rev. Mark Broadhead, said.

This year's event adds a heritage component that salutes local history and traditions. The Baker Block Museum and North Okaloosa Heritage Association join the Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce Arts and Culture Committee and the Friends of the Arts in supporting the event.
