Start off a great weekend with good eatin’ for a good cause! Before the festival kicks off between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. enjoy a hearty meal at our Pioneer Breakfast on the 1880’s-style farmstead. This down-home fundraiser features freshly grilled sausage, scrambled eggs, pancakes and Bradley’s Country Store grits.
