Get ready to go nuts at the 26th annual Brooklet Peanut Festival in downtown Brooklet on Aug 15.

The festival will kick off with a 5K peanut run/walk. Local residents and organizations provide nonstop entertainment, including arts and crafts, live performances, and even an Elvis impersonator. A street dance featuring local musicians will close out of the festival. The festival's parade is televised on WTOC channel 11, Savannah.

A free shuttle service is provided at designated locations. For more information on location and events, visit brookletpeanutfestival.com or call (912) 842-2137.
