If like folk singer James Taylor you've seen fire and you've seen rain, expect this weekend to see the latter and not the former at Georgia's Sprewell Bluff State Park.
Because of rain, the annual "Fire On The Mountain!" celebration set for this Saturday has been postponed a week, to next Saturday, March 21, says the state Department of Natural Resources.
Some Columbus-area residents regularly make a pilgrimage to the Flint River park for this celebration extolling the benefits of controlled burning to promote longleaf pine forests.
The festival sponsored by the Thomaston-Upson County Chamber of Commerce features bluegrass music, local foods, live animal exhibits and environmental presentations at the riverside park. From there spectators can watch as professionals conduct a prescribed burn on the opposite river bluff.
Never miss a local story.
The event will begin at noon March 21. Admission is $3 per vehicle.
