1 days 21 hours ago | | | Email

Kristy D. Carter/Sampson IndependentThe 17th Annual Sorghum Festival held Saturday featured more than just the sweet, savory taste of sorghum. Festival-goers, young and old, were entertained by the electric train display, which encompassed an entire room within the Old McDaniel School building. The display, owned and managed by Allen Carter, measures 18 feet by 24 feet and features more than three trains meandering their way through a miniature town. According to John Matthews, coordinator of the Sorghum Festival, between 1,800 and 2,000 people attended Saturday’s event. ‘The weather was beautiful and everybody had a great time,’ Matthews said. He and his wife, Annie, are looking forward to next year’s event.
