The ninth annual Glendale Spring Fest on Saturday will offer many of the treats they have over the last eight years, and this year the day will take on an even greater cause — helping many others.

A 5K run/walk will be held at 8 a.m. in Glendale with proceeds going to help the family of Addison Jo Blair, a 3-year-old diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.

Also, a non-perishable item food drive will be held to benefit North Hardin HOPE.

“All the food that is collected will stay right here in Hardin County,’’ said Mike Cummins, president of the Glendale Merchants Association, which hosts Spring Fest.

Spring Fest is from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. with booths lining the streets and plenty of happenings at the community park.

There are booths for arts and crafts from area residents as well vendors from around the state. There is food available as well an antique auto display at the community park and bouncy houses and slides for children.

Music begins at noon at the park with Louisville groups Crushed Velvet and Da Mudcats scheduled to perform.

“This means a great deal to Glendale,’’ Cummins said. “It not only brings people from all over Hardin County here, but people from around the state. We are also proud to have this food drive for North Hardin HOPE and to help those guys.’’

Cummins said Spring Fest continues to grow. He said all shops and restaurants also are open Saturday in Glendale.
