SOUTH SHORE, Ky. — If you are looking for great food, live entertainment, and family-oriented fun this weekend, you will surely discover it at the eighth annual South Shore Quilt and Heritage Festival which will be held Sept. 25-27.

Staci Warnock has served as one of the coordinators of the Quilt Festival for the last seven years, and according to her own proclamation, she is not tired yet.

“I absolutely love being a part of this event. To have the opportunity to see everyone come together, and see this community having a good time, and families coming in from out of town and getting together for the weekend of events is just priceless,” she said.

Warnock said constructing plans for the South Shore Heritage and Quilt Festival is a major undertaking.

“We start in about January, and work on. When this one is over with, we start on the next one,” she said.

The committee for the festival is encouraging the community to bring lawn chairs and relax and enjoy three days of live music, a variety of foods. According to Warnock, there will be a host of activities for children to enjoy, such as inflatables, games, and crafts. A motorcycle/trike show, dog show, skillet-throwing contest are just some of the activities planned for this year’s festival.

“Overall, this is down-home fun. The laughter, the kids playing, and everyone just enjoying one another,” she said. “We are expecting a great turnout for this year’s Quilt Festival.”
