For more than 60 years crowds have gathered on the banks of the Roanoke in Jamesville to celebrate the arrival of spring with friends, family, food and fun!  Today, the festivities take over the whole town! The Herring Festival has grown to include a Friday night band, Saturday morning pancake breakfast followed by a unique parade; a huge Egg Hunt set on the beautiful grounds of Tammy's Plant House, complete with live bunnies; talented singers and musicians bringing a variety of music types throughout the afternoon; a Saturday night Street Dance and sunset Fireworks!  A good variety of vendors rounds out the offerings. Start spring off right!
