File photo Downtown Smithville will be bursting at the seams Friday and Saturday as the Smithville Fiddlers Jamboree gets into swing beginning at 9 a.m. and going until deep in the evenings. Since parking will be at a premium, it's suggested visitors either pay to park near downtown or enjoy free parking along the roads near downtown, provided they are not posted with no parking signs.
It’s showtime in Smithville as the Jamboree returns to town this Friday and Saturday with thousands expected to flock to the internationally acclaimed festival. “We’re getting all geared up for the 47th annual Smithville Fiddler’s Jamboree and Crafts Festival coming up Friday, July 6 and Saturday, July 7, starting at 9 a.m. each day,” said Chamber of Commerce Director Suzanne Williams of the eagerly anticipated annual event. “There’re going to be thousands of people here for this wonderful music competition that is national and state recognized,” Shan Williams, also of the Chamber, noted, adding there will be over 200 craft vendors.
