Best friends (from left) Lillie McPeek, Khammy Williams and Madi Hamilton stroll through the midway Thursday at the Commercial Point Homecoming Festival. The 10-year-olds said they look forward to the event each year. “I like the rides,” said McPeek, while Williams said she enjoys the games and Hamilton likes cotton candy. The festival comes to a close on Saturday with the Grand Parade at 11 a.m., fish stand and midway opening at noon, and a car show.
