FLORENCE -- Florence is going nutty for pecans this weekend.

The eighth annual SC Pecan Festival is happening in Florence on Saturday. Organizers are expecting another record crowd of more than 50,000 people to come out and enjoy eight stages of live music, kids’ activities, amusement rides, food and vendors.

Organizers say this year’s event also features a car show, antique tractor show, kids’ center and a downtown farmer’s market.

For health nuts, there’s also a half-marathon and a cycling event.
