The 32nd annual festival will begin with a pancake breakfast at 7 a.m. and culminate with an hourlong parade at 1 p.m. featuring Grand Pioneer Loretta Bilow and Grand Marshal Clayton Mork, Crescent School superintendent.
To accommodate it, a stretch of state Highway 112 will be closed from 12:30 p.m. to 2:40 p.m. from the highway's intersection with Piedmont Road to east of downtown Joyce. A detour route will be marked.
A cheering contest will follow the parade at about 2 p.m.
Homemade blackberry pies will be sold beginning at 10 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. — or until they are all gone — at the Joyce Depot Museum.
Pies will be judged between 11 a.m. and noon. The contest is sponsored by Peninsula Daily News.
