A huge crowd enjoys the Taste of Newnan during last fall's event.

Newnan’s Court Square will be filled with plenty of hungry people tonight at the Spring Taste of Newnan, sponsored by Main Street Newnan.

The popular food festival, held each spring and fall, offers an evening of fun for the whole family from 5-8:30 p.m. With plenty of booths manned by local restaurants and caterers, there is sure to be something for everyone. The event showcases area eateries and gives attendees the opportunity to sample foods that these businesses do best.

The younger set is invited to visit the Kidz Zone that will be set up on West Washington Street, where they can enjoy carnival rides, funnel cakes and other treats and activities.

Voting for “Best of Taste of Newnan” and “Best Booth” will be held at the Main Street information tent on West Broad Street.

The evening’s entertainment will be provided by “True Story Worship” and Trenton Ewing, who will be performing on the stage on West Broad. Tables and chairs will be available again this year in front of the stage so that attendees can sit and enjoy their food and listen to the music.

Tickets will be sold at the event and were being presold at Bank of North Georgia (Jefferson Street and Temple Avenue branches), Encore Decor, Charter Bank (downtown office), DuBose Jewelers, Fine Lines Framing, Gillyweed, C. S. Toggery, Let Them Eat Toffee, and Grannie Fannie’s Antiques.

Tickets at these locations must be purchased with cash or check.

Free public parking is available along downtown streets and in several off-street lots around the square.

Taste of Newnan is open to the public and there is no admission charge other than the food exchange tickets.

As with all Main Street events, Taste of Newnan will go on rain or shine.
