“This festival is a wonderful way to bring our community together and show visitors what’s so special about Brookhaven,” said Festival Chair and Founder Rebecca Chase Williams. “It’s a great place for families to bring their children to play, runners to run their first spring race on our scenic course, couples to meet for food and live music, and pet lovers to bring their dogs and stroll with us in the Pet Parade.”
