More than 2,000 people attended the ClydeFEST Kids Carnival of Folk Art in Bynum on Saturday, organizers said.
The event celebrates Clyde Jones, famed for the “critters” he creates with a chainsaw and wood found in the forest. Since 1982, Jones has been making his creations, which he won’t sell. He makes a critter, as he calls them, and then either gives it to someone or auctions it off so he can give the money to a local community group.
The Chatham County Arts Council sponsored the annual festival, which is in its 13th year. Live music, storytelling, kids' critter creation and dance were featured.
