“Mayfling’s going to be the 25th and 26th at City Park,” Griffin-Spalding Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Bonnie Pfrogner said. “It gets under way at 10 a.m.”
Saturday’s big feature will be Southeastern Reptile Rescue. Jason Clark, a Butts County resident who has appeared on Animal Planet, will be conducting reptile shows throughout the day. Saturday will also feature chess and Texas Hold ’Em tournaments, which will begin at 10 a.m. at the City Park Gym.
Much will be available for purchase at the Mayfling. There will be plants for sale from the GARC Greenhouse and the Flint River Iris Society. There will be arts and crafts from local artists and even some from outside the area. Many local clubs and organizations will be there to raise money for the charities they support.
“Both days, in the mornings only, the Kiwanis Kids will be selling sausage biscuits and gravy,” she said.
There will also be food. Lots of food.
“Everyone needs to bring their appetite,” Pfrogner said.
The Mayfling will feature hamburgers, fried potato logs, hot dogs, barbecue, fried green tomatoes, fried dill pickles, funnel cakes, vegetable plates, Philly cheesesteaks, Polish sausage, kettle corn, BLT sandwiches, baked goods and more.
“It should be a great two days at the City Park,” she said. “It’s an event that’s free to the public and we just invite everybody to come out and enjoy themselves.”
This year, there will be a raffle to win a grill.
“We’ve normally had a prize of some sort every year,” Pfrogner said.
According to a flier from the chamber, there will be a drawing for the grill on Sunday at 5 p.m. The grill can be viewed at the Griffin Regional Welcome Center on Hill Street and tickets can be purchased for $2 each or three for $5. One does not have to be present at the drawing in order to win.
