Peanut Festival becomes victim of Hurricane Florence

By: Bladen Journal

DUBLIN — Hurricane Florence has ended the 26th annual Dublin Peanut Festival early.

The festival started last weekend with the annual scholarship pageant. The big day, however, was to be Saturday when entertainment, vendors and thousands came to the Peanut Capital of the South.

It was unclear if there will be a rescheduled date after the storm passes and conditions can be assessed. An email to the Bladen Journal said the event was canceled.
