New Festival Signs
Now in Place
HAMPTON- With the 75th Hampton County Watermelon Festival just around the corner, Festival Committee plans continue to move forward. One of the biggest projects taken on is the replacement of the old Festival signs that you see when entering the county. The old signs have been around for more than a decade and have begun to fall apart and lose their color. New signs have been purchased and are now spread throughout the county in their usual locations.
The new Festival signs are part of a “sprucing up” effort by the committee due to the high profile anniversary this year. “These signs have been around for years,” said Festival Chairman Robert Brown. “The replacement of the signs was one of our top priorities for this year. They will look great for all of our county residents and give them something to be proud of, while at the same time impressing all of our out-of-town visitors.”
Festival signs are located throughout the county. Some locations include Hwy 601S below Furman; in Yemassee near I-95; Hwy 278 coming from Fairfax; Hwy 601N at the county line; Hwy 63 at the county line; Hwy 321 coming out of Fairfax toward Estill. Stop by and check one of them out!
