Carousel Festival Selects Headliner


Singer-songwriter Mac McAnally, part of the Jimmy Buffett & The Coral Reefer Band, will headline the 25th annual Burlington Carousel Festival at 4:30 p.m. Sept. 16 at Burlington City Park, 1333 Overbrook Road, Burlington.

The two-time reigning Country Music Association’s Musician of the Year, also a solo artist, has penned songs with country music superstars such as Kenny Chesney. According to Mary Faucette of the Burlington Recreation and Parks Department, “they (Jimmy Buffett & the Coral Reefer Band) are taking a break during that time so he was able to be here.”

Admission to the two-day festival is free and hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 15 and 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 16. For more information on the festival, visit www.burlingtonnc.gov/festival or call (336) 222-5030.
