Mayberry on Main will be celebrated from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday in downtown Van Buren.
“We will celebrate The Andy Griffith Show and the characters we all love,” said Debbie Foliart of Chapters on Main, 816 Main St.
The Andy Griffith Show started in 1960 and aired its last episode on April 1, 1968, but has never left the airwaves.
“Chapters on Main will feature hard-to-find books that highlight The Andy Griffith Show,” Foliart said. “On our shelves is the book ‘Andy and Don’ written about the bond and friendship that truly occurred between Andy Griffith and Don Knotts.”
The Andy Griffith Show trivia contests will be at 10 a.m. and 2 and 4 p.m. with the top winners competing at 6 p.m. for the championship.
“There is still time to enter and seats are available,” Foliart said.
BBQ Bill and the Smokin’ Chickens will play bluegrass from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. on the deck at Chapters on Main.
“Come get some great award-winning pickles to celebrate Aunt Bee’s kerosene cucumbers,” Foliart said. “And, have some fun at the pickle toss.”
There will also be a costume contest beginning at 1 p.m. with prizes for contests throughout the day.
D&R Trolley Stop will offer a “Goober” barbecue sandwich special with a coupon available at Chapters.
