This year, the city of Georgetown celebrates the 17th Annual Red Poppy Festival, April 22nd through 24th, with three days of free concerts, parades, contests, art, food and family fun to welcome spring and the arrival of new signature red poppies. Multi-platinum country recording artist Tracy Lawrence will be onsite headlining the event on Saturday, April 23.
