Register hosted its inaugural Pecan Festival May 20 on its Main Street.

The family-friendly day featured a kids’ zone, cake walk, food trucks, live music, a hayride and raffles, along with a petting zoo. 

Also on hand were more than 70 vendors selling art, knives, plants, soap, crafts, jewelry, cosmetics, leather goods and more. 

The free event, which brought out a huge crowd, was sponsored by Register Baptist Church and the town of Register.
