New this year at “Spring in the Hollow” is Art in the Park from 9 am until 1 pm, in Wiseman Park. Local artisans will demonstrate Natural Gemstone Jewelry, Stained glass, Smithing and Woodcarving. The event is presented by the Moore County Library who will host a “Make and Take” table for all ages.

Most people will tell you, without you even asking, that Spring is their favorite season of the year. Spring in Moore County is extraspecial because every year, on the last Saturday in April, we celebrate the beauty around us with Spring in the Hollow. The 23rd observance of this event on April 28 will be a pleasing mixed bouquet of familiar events and interesting new activities. Craft, plant and flower vendors will be around the Square from 8 am until 5 pm. The 9th Annual Quilt Show, sponsored by fce, will be in the IBIS building, next to Lynchburg Fix’ns from 9:30 am until 4 pm. Admission is a donation of any amount toward fce’s community projects. Ribbons will be awarded to the public’s favorite quilts. Bring one or more of your treasures for display to the IBIS building Friday, April 27 from noon until 3 pm. Bring a chair to the Gazebo and get your number for the Plant and Birdhouse Auction at 10:30 am. The birdhouses this year represent a community effort. They were built by MCHS FFA members with supplies donated by Bradley Dye and were painted by MCHS art students and local merchants. New this year, the Moore County Library presents Art in the Park from 9 am until 1 pm, in Wiseman Park. Local artisans will demonstrate Sketching, Oil painting, Natural Gemstone Jewelry, Stained glass, Smithing and Woodcarving. The Library will have a “Make and Take” table for all ages. This program is being made possible by a grant from the Tennessee Art Commission. Be sure to visit the Old Jail Museum and see the recent restoration of the original living and dining rooms that were used by the sheriff’s family until 1990. Admission is a donation toward the upkeep of the Museum. C & R Buggy will be giving rides with colorful commentaries. In addition to all of these special events, visitors are sure to enjoy local restaurants, shopping at Lynchburg’s unique shops and visiting the Lynchburg Winery and the Jack Daniel Distillery.
