The 2013 Native American Cherokee Trail River Festival is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 9 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. and promises to be a free day of fun for the entire family. This year’s event will be held at the Cayce Center Complex (1800 12th St. Ext., Cayce) and includes craft vendors, cultural food and two 18’ teepees. Children will be able to dance and play games that Native American children played while parents listen to wonderful music and wander through the many displays and demonstration booths. Special guest will be Chief Steve Silverheels, son of Jay Silverheels. Jay Silverheels is best known for his role as Tonto from the Lone Ranger television show.
This year’s festival will also include drummers from the Edisto Tribe, Edisto River Singers and dancers from around the quad state area (SC,NC,GA,TN). Attendees will want to bring a chair or blanket – and will definitely want to remember to bring a camera, too.
The Native American Cherokee Trail River Festival is celebrating its 13th year and is sponsored by the Circle of Native American History, a non-profit organization dedicated to the education of others about the culture and heritage of the Native American people.
