In Brundidge, they're getting ready to celebrate their rich peanut butter heritage.

Around 1928 Johnston Mills opened as one of the first places in the country that produced commercial peanut butter and now they celebrate that history with a festival.

Each year you can find arts and crafts, food, entertainment, demonstration and even a Nutter Butter Parade at 1:00 p.m.

But this year they're also combining their celebration with the Alabama Year of the Small Town Celebration.

"We've got hundreds of people that will be coming back to Brundidge that lived here, went to school here and they're all coming back and we're going to have an exciting day with them. That's probably a really exciting thing for us to do to see people we haven't seen in a while and have them enjoy it,” says festival coordinator Lawrence Bowden.

Events start Saturday at 8 a.m. with a 5k run through downtown Brundidge and will go until 4:30.

Entrance is free.
