It's time for a Richmond Hill pop quiz.
What happens every year in October, amid the cooling temperatures and ever-increasing throngs of people in J. F. Gregory Park?
If you said the Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival, you guessed right.
This year's festival marks the 15th year it has taken place in the city park. The fest features more than 30 food booths with everything from crawfish to gator tail to traditional barbecue, a carnival and many arts and craft booths, said Billy Albritton of the organizing committee.
Albritton expects more than 30,000 people to attend the three-day event.
"We've got a lot going on. If the weather holds, it will be a great weekend and we'll get a large crowd," he said.
"The entertainment this year is some of the best we've ever had. The headliners Saturday night are Collective Soul. They're great. They've had a lot of hits. Get there early for a good seat. You're going to like them," said Bonnie Proctor, secretary of the festival committee.
Performers Oct. 18 include Georgia Fire Band and 8 Mile Bend from 7-9 p.m.
Entertainment is planned all day Oct. 19, including performances by Dancing Unlimited, Life Moves Dance Studio and the Richmond Hill Middle School Band, with more bands taking the stage from 5-8 p.m. Drivin' N Cryin' plays at 8 p.m., with Collective Soul closing out the night.
Oct. 20 features Ossabaw Sound, along with shows by Richmond Hill Community Theater and the New Life Church Band.
Also taking place Oct. 20 is the 5K Crab Crawl. The course will be along the rice dykes to the rear of J.F. Gregory Park, with the starter's pistol set to sound at 1 p.m.
There will be no on-site parking in J.F. Gregory Park Proctor suggests taking the shuttle from designated spots throughout the city. She also said some parking will be designated for the shopping center, and attendees who park there run the risk of having their vehicles towed.
First-come, first-served on-site parking for patrons with a government-issued handicapped pass is available.
No pets or coolers are permitted. The carnival and midway will be open all three days, and an all-inclusive ride bracelet will be available.
With more than a dozen rides, there's something sure to please everyone, Proctor said.
