The Hillsboro Festival of the Bells opens today (Thursday) in its new location of Southern State Community College. The festival is in its first year at the college, moving away from the downtown over concerns with traffic problems and congestion for Hillsboro's downtown area.
Christian Music night is Thursday at the main stage, with country music Friday and Saturday nights. Dylan Scott performs Friday and Adam Doleac on Saturday.
The Festival runs through Saturday. Parking is encouraged at Hobart Manufacturing and at Shaffer Park.
