KERSHAW – What started as a fundraising idea for a Kershaw business destroyed by fire is turning into one of the biggest festivals hosted by the town.
The Heart of Summer Festival will take place Saturday in downtown Kershaw.
Resident Ann Marie Dwyer, owner of Virginia's Dream in Kershaw, conceived the idea.
"I grew up in Louisiana and festivals down there are a whole lot different than they are here," she said. "They're a whole lot bigger. So I decided to try and bring a little of that flavor to Kershaw."
