It’s the one day of the year where the town of Broadway’s population quadruples for several hours.

Broadway Our Way returns to Lee County on April 15, bringing with it five live bands, 92 vendors, a loaded kids’ zone and a food truck rodeo. Organizers say this year’s event is lining up to be one of the town’s biggest.

Headlining this year’s festival at the Jammin’ on Main Street Dance is The Main Event Band. Billed as “the ultimate party band performing R&B, soul, beach, country and funk,” they will perform on the main stage beginning at 7 p.m. The main stage will also host Sweet Potato Pie, Tonk Honky, The Simpletones and The Dalton Davis band with concerts throughout the day.

Festival goers can participate in a cornhole tournament (registration on site), a car show (registration on site) or enjoy a wealth of culinary choices across a food truck rodeo and five downtown restaurants. Vendors will offer crafts, handmade items, services and custom items. All street fair events begin at 10 a.m.

This year’s kid’s activities include inflatables, princesses, heroes, face painting and area college mascots.
