Roaring '20s returns to Sebring as two-day festival

SEBRING - Downtown Sebring's 31st Annual Roaring 20s Festival will kick off Feb. 7-8.

This festival, typically a one-day event, has been extended to two days and is a great way to celebrate the festive days in South Central Florida when visitors flocked to the shores of Lake Jackson.

The event, staged by Push Event Productions in partnership with the City of Sebring, Sebring Community Redevelopment Agency and Highlands County Convention and Visitors Bureau, "will transform downtown of today back to the 1920s," states a news release.

The Bootleggers Ball will kick off the event 6-9 p.m. Feb. 7 at the Jack R. Stroupe Civic Center with drinks, food samplings and music by The Mudflappers, an Orlando folk act.

Tickets are $35 in advance.

A portion of proceeds will benefit Highlands Little Theatre, Highlands Museum of the Arts and the Downtown Sebring Business Alliance. Tickets are available at Dogtown USA, Highlands Little Theatre, GB'S Formal Wear and Heartland Real Estate Corp.

On Feb. 8, the Roaring '20s Arts and Crafts show will be held 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nearly 80 crafts, arts and food vendors will convene around the Circle downtown. The Mudflappers will provide entertainment 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Admission is free.
