EDINBURG -- Fans of John Paul Strain can get his new print, "Saving the Edinburg Mill," this week in advance of the town's annual Ole Time Festival.
The new work, along with earlier ones, will be for sale in the mill this week and during the festival, said Janet Wagniere, one of the festival's organizers.
Strain will be signing prints at the festival from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, and noon to 3 p.m. Sunday in the mill.
This will be the 31st year for the festival, which starts at 5:30 p.m. Friday and runs through Sunday evening.
Highlights include a children's festival, a parade, an antique car show, more than 75 crafters, numerous bands, dances and a play, "Sylvia," at Theater Shenandoah.
"[The play] is not an official festival function, but it's part of it," Wagniere said.
A "whole slew of" jitterbuggers will be coming to give lessons and demonstrations on Saturday in the gym at the old Edinburg Middle School. That will be followed by a Jitterbug Jam.
At the same time, there will be a square dance and line dance in the school's cafeteria.
Also this year, musicians will be playing two-hour sets, Wagniere said.
"A lot of people used to complain because we were having just hour sets and quick turnarounds," she said.
This year's duck race is being handled by the Edinburg Ducks swim team, according to Wagniere.
"There's a lot of enthusiasm for that," she said.
