Dragoons at the Prattville Cityfest
The Prattville Cityfest will be held Friday and Saturday, May 4-5th in the downtown Main Street area. Friday the festivities commence with food and free music on the stage overlooking the river. The Dragoons will again be setting up their booth that evening to be prepared for those attending Cityfest on Saturday. We should be in the same spot as past years, close to the entrance to Main Street which is blocked from vehicular traffic for the duration of the festival. We are across and slightly down (east) from the Prattaugan Museum which houses many Dragoons artifacts from the War for Southern Independence and from the early years including the founding of the Prattville community. The Dragoons will be manning a table to provide information on the camp and the Sons of Confederate Veterans for passerbys. Confederate memorabilia including Battle flags will be available for purchase at great prices with proceeds to benefit the work of the camp. Youngsters will be able to receive complimentary small Confederate Battle Flags and SCV coins to proudly display their Southern pride and heritage while enjoying the Prattville Cityfest. Come down to the Cityfest and show your support and say hello to the Dragoons at their booth from 8am-5pm on Saturday.
