Kickin' things off: Dogwood festival begins with 3-week celebration



This year, the siblings decided to take it a creative step further.

After giving a peddler a go on his “old-fashioned root beer,” the two headed over to the nearby stand of homemade ice cream with silver mugs in hand – there, to fashion their own on-the-spot vintage root beer floats. Final result: success.

“It was really good,” the Rolens agreed, Danielle adding, “best root beer and ice cream I’ve ever had!”

The 76th Annual Dogwood Trails Celebration includes events the last two weekends of March and the first weekend in April.
