FENCE participate in Super Saturday
Signs of spring are evident everywhere you look this time of year. With the emergence of new flowers, leaves, even new animals, it is hard not to become infected with a sense of appreciation for the life around you. Yet in Tryon, there is another sign of spring—Super Saturday. This event, held in annually in Tryon, is a celebration of the arts geared towards kids. There are theatre performances and special demonstrations every hour, but between shows attendees are browsing different vendors along the street. This is where FENCE comes in.

This event is made possible by the Kirby Endowment at the Polk County Community Foundation.
