Some new events are on tap and some popular attractions will return to the upcoming Andrews Summer Festival, which takes place Friday, Aug. 10 and Saturday, Aug. 11. But Festival Chair Julie Newsome says one of the biggest draws to this year’s festivities will be the music, featuring four bands.

“We’re ready for it,” she says. “We’re hoping we have good weather and no rain – we don’t want any storms. And hopefully everybody will come out and enjoy all of our year’s worth of hard work.”
