Morris College is proud to announce that the town of Lane has named President Staggers the Grand Marshal of the annual Lane Stag Festival.

The three-day event will be held at the Lane gazebo park on Highway 377 beginning Friday, September 20, 2019. President Staggers will be a part of Saturday’s parade that will take place at 10 a.m. The parade will start and end at the town square before the day continues with many events.

The Lane Stag Festival celebrates its fourteenth year and is expected to be better than ever. Each year there are a host of new activities and competitions. Contestants can compete in fun events such as the BBQ cook-off, cake walk, diaper derby, and more. Not only are there more contests, there are also even bigger prizes. This year, the town will raffle off a 2008 Dodge Charger. Tickets are priced at $15.

The festival will come to a close Sunday morning following a 9 a.m. worship service in the park. Those interested in attending are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and appropriate weather gear.
