The 8th Annual Loris Spring Festival & Outdoor Expo was held this past Saturday in Downtown Loris. We had some great vendors and entertainment. Everyone enjoyed a wonderful day in Loris. The winner of the Duck Calling Contest for adults was Bradley McCrackin, second place was Phillip Brame and third was Ryder Williamson. Hunter Thynes was the winner for the youth division, second was Brad Tiesing and third place was Branding Tyler.
