    On Saturday night, crowds of people will be dancing in the streets of Brooklet after enjoying the day at the 23rd annual Brooklet Peanut Festival.
    The festival, organized each year by members of the Brooklet Community Development Association, will be held this Saturday from 7 a.m. until 
10:30 p.m. in downtown Brooklet. To kick start the event, people will be up and running at 7 a.m. as the 5K Peanut Run/Walk gets underway. Then, at 10 a.m., a parade through downtown Brooklet will showcase dozens of entries.
    The festival traditionally draws a large crowd, with visitors from all over the state. There will be plenty of food vendors offering yummy snacks like donuts, barbecue, pancakes, ice cream and lemonade, blooming onions, kettle corn, funnel cakes and, of course, peanuts of every imaginable kind — boiled, roasted, Cajun flavored, fried and baked into treats. 
    A variety of crafts vendors also will be there to present all sorts of items for sale, such as live plants; homemade sauces, dips and soup mixes; handmade purses and accessories; clothing; jewelry and more.
    Free live entertainment from dance groups, bands, soloists and choirs will be offered all day long, beginning at 11:30 a.m., following the conclusion of the parade. Most performances will be held at the main festival site.
    Wrapping up this year’s festival, the street dance will take place from 7–10:30 p.m. and will feature two performers: One More Time and Sam's Drive-In Band.
