The Old-Time Music Festival will have docent narrators out on the Downtown Square from 11 AM to 2 PM each day of the festival, June 2nd and 3rd. These docent narrators will be young people from the community, and they will be telling the story of notable buildings and locations on the Square. These buildings and locations will include the Historic Post Office, the courthouse and monuments, the Aid Hardware Building, and the historic Opera House. The docent narrators will be stationary and will be able to point people to the next location of interest. People can feel free to start at any one of the docent stations and work their way around the square in any direction. The docent narrators will be identifiable by lanyards with badges.
