The Greer Family Fest is just getting warmed up.

Saturday’s schedule has a variety of activities for children and as the day wears on the entertainment takes over highlighted by Sister Hazel at 8 p.m.

The weather forecast couldn't be better with high in the mid-70s under sunny skies and dipping into the 60s in the evening.

The second day of Greer Idol tryouts, at 1 p.m., will earn teens and adults a gold pass for callbacks later this month at the Cannon Centre. The ‘Lil Miss and Mr. Pageant is 10 a.m.

Festival sponsor Pelham Medical Center has a variety of activities (see list below) with screenings, doctor’s panel and other stations at City Park to introduce the health care’s services.

And if you feel a little angry let off some steam at the dunking booth at Victoria and Trade featuring community celebrities as the target.
