For more than a decade the city of Lynnville has celebrated the county's abundance of blackberries with a festival downtown and this year is no exception.

The Blackberry Festival is Saturday, with vendors lining downtown and ready to sell their wares around 8 a.m. Booths will include crafts and food.

Bringing his musical talent to his home county is Worley Max McKinney, who will perform with vocalist Genevieve Allen. The duo will began at 10 a.m.

Anytime of the day, children are invited to decorate the streets with their chalk art.

Around 1 p.m., gubernatorial candidate Bill Lee will make a bus stop tour visit to Lynnville. Lee is visiting all ninety-five counties in Tennessee in the first ninety-five days of his campaign. The Blackberry Festival stop is his official visit to Giles County.

Balloons will be released afterward in honor of cancer survivors, said Lynnville Tourism Director Tim Turner.

At 6 p.m., a street dance will begin, featuring Goodspring Band.
