Red Poppy Festival goes virtual
The 21st annual Red Poppy Festival is going virtual due to COVID-19.
While the festival has been rescheduled to Oct. 23-25, the City is offering an interim virtual festival for fans to celebrate from home.
The online festival will include live music from Dysfunkshun Junkshun, a video replay of the 2019 Red Poppy Parade, and a presentation of the history of red poppies in Georgetown by The Daytripper star Chet Garner.
Special T-shirts commemorating the 2020 Red Poppy Festival: Virtual Edition, will be available for purchase. All proceeds will benefit The Caring Place. For more information, visit cityofgeorgetowntx.formstack.com/forms/2020redpoppyfestivalvirtualedition.
