The Jack-O-Lantern Jubilee is back this weekend in downtown North Augusta for two days of music and fun.
Festivities will kick off Friday, October 27, with seven-time GRAMMY winner, TobyMac. On Saturday, Oct. 28, Sister Hazel and Chapel Hart will also perform, according to the city of North Augusta’s tourism website.
“With seven GRAMMY Awards and more than 16 million units in career sales, singer, rapper, and record producer, TobyMac, has had a significant impact on contemporary Christian music during his storied solo career,” as well as during his time with trio dc Talk. Between dc Talk and his solo work, TobyMac has sold over 10 million albums, according to TobyMac’s website.
TobyMac will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
On Saturday, Danica and Devynn Hart, and cousin, Trea Swindle, known as Chapel Hart, will perform at 6:30 p.m.
The trio began performing together in 2014, and the women competed in NBC’s America’s Got Talent where they earned the Golden Buzzer during the audition episode, automatically advancing to the next round. They would go on to finish fifth in the competition.
On Sept. 17, 2022, they made their Grand Ole Opry debut.
Following Chapel Hart at 8 p.m., will be Sister Hazel, a band that formed in Gainesville, Fla.
Called “one of the Top 100 Most Influential Independent Performers of the last 15 years” by Performing Songwriter Magazine, Sister Hazel is comprised of five seasoned musicians. Their song “All for You” peaked at 11 on Billboard’s Top 100 in 1997.
The featured entertainers will be on the main stage, and there will be two community stages where groups such as Tip, Toes and Taps and the North Augusta School of Dance will perform.
In addition to the entertainment, there will be craft and food vendors along with plenty of activities for the kids.
The Jack-O-Lantern Jubilee concerts are free to the public. The festival will open at 10 a.m. Saturday with craft and food vendors, amusement rides and bounce houses, the city’s website said. It’s $10 for unlimited rides.
