THOMASVILLE – The City of Thomasville wraps up it’s sixth annual Due South Festival.

Music, vendors, and art, all coming together for one weekend, and leaving people with memories they’ll never forget.

“It’s really casual. Come as you are. Have a good time. Everyone is a friend,” says Sara Anders.

“It’s pretty awesome,” says Brad Anders. “You had a pretty good bit of bands that came in, so there were a lot of people here.”

The Anders live in Thomasville.

They say the venue for Saturday’s concert was packed, while several musicians took to the stage of the city’s new amphitheater.

Organizers say tickets were sold out before the day of the concert.

Shortly after, they added an additional 100 more and they sold out within minutes.

“It just seemed like everybody came out to support Thomasville, but also have a good time,” says Brad.

Local downtown businesses also felt that support.

“It definitely puts a smile on your face,” says Jonathan Cleveland, owner of The Mix.

The amphitheater is now located right behind his shop.

“Saturday was booming,” says Cleveland. “We had a ton of people coming out because of Due South.”

He hopes the increase in business is a good sign for what’s to come.

“Just keep trying to push traffic down here, but you can definitely tell a big difference,” says Cleveland.

The weekend of fun is now raising the bar.

“Growing up, I couldn’t have even told you or thought that this was ever going to happen,” says Brad. “It makes you really proud of your city.”

People in the community are excited for many more years to come.
