That is, if the street paving is done.

Downtown Jamestown comes to life this weekend for the annual Jamestown Lions Club Bean Festival.  the festival kicks off at 5PM, Friday September 16 and continue through Saturday night, September 17th.  A parade, beginning south of town off of Waynesville-Jamestown Rd. will begin at 6PM and travel east on W. Washington St. (US 35).

The festival includes vendors of all kinds, kiddie rides, games, bean soup and corn bread, local bands, pancake breakfast, car show, ham and blanket game, $2,500 raffle, bingo and more.  In addition, the newly refurbished Jamestown Opera House will be open for tours throughout the weekend.

Planning and preparations continue though the small town has been undergoing major road repairs. For several weeks, most of  North and South Limestone Streets (St. Rt. 72) have been excavated making travel hazardous, even to the town post office. The festival is centered at the intersections of SR 72 and US 35 in the middle of town.
