VALE – North Court Street will be a hotspot on Saturday with vendors, music and food as part of a Spring Fling celebration sponsored by Mal’s Diner.

The event was originally scheduled for April, but bad weather prompted organizer Malinda Castleberry, owner of Mal’s Diner, to postpone the event.

“We really didn’t want to cancel, but the weather just wasn’t cooperating. We thought waiting until now would be best for everyone,” she said.

The downtown Vale event will feature a food truck, beer garden and over 20 vendors as well as live music. Castleberry said five bands will play at the event, which begins at 10 a.m.

The beer garden, she said, will be in the lot behind Mal’s Diner at 218 A. St. N. in Vale.

The town agreed to allow Castleberry to close North Court Street to provide space for groups and vendors.

“Hopefully a lot of people will show up. It’s free and should be great fun for adults and kids alike,” Castleberry said.
