Old South Gaylord Memorial Day Festival - A Weekend to Remember

Benefiting the Washington Street Community Center

Metro Taxi provides a free shuttle to and from parking facilities Old South Gaylord Memorial Day Festival every May. This festival started out as a sidewalk sale. Several merchants got together and decided that it might be fun to get together and decided that it might be fun to put their merchandise outside the store for a day to help promote their business and maybe get a tan. During the first few years, musicians would drop by and entertain anyone who wanted to listen. Since the entertainment seemed to draw people to the block merchants started to inviting entertainers to join them at this new annual event. Each year the festival donates a portion of its proceeds to a worthy charity or non-profit. This event now draws close to 60,000 people in three days. Metro Taxi supports this event and is proud to provide a free shuttle from the parking facilities at South High School to the Festival on South Gaylord Street each year.
