Salisbury Festival


An estimated 30-thousand visitors are expected to attend this weekend’s Salisbury Festival with rides, booths and entertainment to greet them.

But the events of last Saturday at Cedar Crossing in which around 15-hundred students found themselves sprayed with Mace by police and four arrested has left city officials scrambling to repair the damage done to the relationship between the city and University students.


       SALISBURY, Md. (AP) - The Salisbury Festival is preparing to celebrate its 30th anniversary.

     The festival, which officially welcomes spring, will be hosted by the Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce this weekend. The three-day event begins Friday and will feature games, rides and music. There will also be a farmers market, a flea market and beer tastings.

     Shannon Mitchell, the chamber's director of communications and events, says all past festival chairmen have been invited to attend the 30th anniversary.
