54 years of a peachy celebration

GILBERT,SC (WIS) - For 54 years, people in Gilbert, South Carolina have been celebrating the Fourth of July with their Annual Peach Festival.

The festival tradition has been based on family, good food, and of course peaches.

One of the biggest sellers at the event has been a peach sizzler and people who attend have no problem spending money on a crop that might not be available too much longer.

Attendees say the festival helps celebrate the country while enjoying the peach crop as well.

On Wednesday, at 10 p.m. a firework display will take place at the Lexington Peach Festival.
