Celebrants turned out by the hundreds on a balmy Saturday afternoon, May 4, to enjoy everything that was offered during the fourth annual Tunes, Tails and Ales festival at Murphy Central Park.
The event, sponsored by Murphy Community Development Corporation, started at 2 p.m. and continued until the last song was sung at 8 p.m. as part of an outdoor concert.
Festival attendees were encouraged to dress as Star Wars characters as a nod to the date and play-on-words quip “May the Fourth be with You.” Posters for the event played up the Star Wars connection.
About 30 craft beer brewers set up tasting stations at the park, offering their creations in 2-ounce servings. Beer tasters purchased tickets that included sampling cups and cards for 12 samples.
