TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Music and poetry meet as one. Due South of Tallahassee transformed Cascades Park into a melting pot of music and poetic culture for the fifth annual Word of South festival.
The three-day event is unlike other music festivals because of the unique mix up of musicians and authors who write their own music.
The organizer of Word of South explained the creation of the lineup.
"We pride ourselves on our very special unique pairing of authors and musicians together," said Sara Marchessault.
Locals said that events like Word of South are needed for the community.
"We're just so happy that Tallahassee is growing up a little bit and to host these types of events," said Rob Rosenberg.
Word of South runs until Sunday from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. With rainfall expected in the area, the events will be set up at different venues including The Wilbury, Fifth and Thomas and The Edison.
