Food vendors will also be available and will be selling a variety of options such as pizza, hotdogs and hamburgers, barbeque and sandwiches along with ice cream, shaved ice, and Italian Ice to wash it down.

Main Street Covington still has some vendor space left for food vendors and non-food vendors. “We’re almost at capacity for food vendors; however, we are looking for some great, unique arts & crafts vendors to be part of this year’s event,” stated Main Street Director Lauren Singleton.

Main Street Covington would like to thank a few of their sponsors: McKibbon Music, Newton County Board of Commissioners, JACO Contracting, Fat Boys Golf Carts, United Bank of Covington, Bulldog Tire Company, Inc., Piedmont Newton, and Athens Orthopedic.
