Huge Crowds Attend Opening Night of Fredericktown Azalea Festival

(Fredericktown) The Azalea Festival in Fredericktown is underway for the weekend.

There were big crowds Friday evening for the festival queen coronation held at Kelly Burlison Middle School and for the festival itself at Azalea Park and Wanda Priest Park.

J-98 broadcast from both locations and we spoke to Breslyn Boswell.

She’s the retiring 2021 festival queen.

Breslyn was thrilled about watching the pageant.

We also spent some time in the heart of the festival.

Tons of vendors are in Fredericktown this weekend, including Cowgirl Crissy with the Very Very Good Jerky Company, with their home base located in Iron County.

The Azalea Festival in Fredericktown will continue Saturday and Sunday.

On Saturday, there’s a diaper derby, carnival rides and games, live music, a ventriloquist, a car show, a truck pull and so much more.

Sunday features a community church service in the park, carnival rides and games, more live music and a huge parade.

J-98 will broadcast once again from the Azalea Festival from 9:30 until 12:30 on Saturday.
