Saturday’s “Spring Fling On the Main” was well received, despite Saturday morning’s rain and thunderstorms, said Char Manning of the Blue Heron, who helped coordinate the event. She says they plan on making it an annual thing.

“Main Street was very active all day,” she said, adding that the morning rains, which stopped before 10 a.m., didn’t hurt attendance any.

Bill Stevens, executive director of the Cadiz/Trigg County Tourist Commission, said attendance was good for it being the first time holding the event.

It held Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Manning said there were roughly 25 artisans, including rug makers, jewelry makers, painters, sculptors and makers of children’s wooden toys. Musicians played, including Jeremy Butts and Cher Loose of Loose Treasures.

Manning says it was Loose’s first public appearance as a singer.

And at 1:30 p.m., there was a Derby Hat Party, and anyone who wanted to could model a derby hat. Many people came out to model hats, including Stevens, said Manning.

She also wanted to thank WKDZ for the two hours of donated coverage it provided.

Manning said the Cadiz Merchants Association, of which she is also a member, also had a hand in organizing Family First Fridays and the Cruz Ins.
