The Southern Anne Arundel Chamber of Commerce hosted the South County Festival on Saturday at Herrington Harbour North in Deale. There, local businesses and civic groups manned booths to sell items, deliver information and entertain visitors. Meanwhile, other booths offered fresh food and cold drinks. Live music made it all a festive atmosphere. It was a fun event for everyone, young and old. We captured the fun in this photo essay.
Congrats to the organizers on a great event.
