Town of Lyman to hold Centennial Celebration
LYMAN, S.C. – The Town of Lyman, South Carolina, is gearing up to celebrate its centennial with a weekend of festivities scheduled for November 4 and 5 in downtown Lyman. This milestone dates back to 1923 when Pacific Mills established the Lyman Printing and Finishing Company, which became a textile powerhouse and the largest employer in Spartanburg County during its peak. Mayor Glenn Greer II credits this investment as the town’s foundation and is eager to honor Lyman’s legacy.
The celebration will kick off on Saturday at 10 a.m. with a wide range of family-friendly activities. The Park of Lyman will host a kid zone with entertainment, face painting, inflatables, and even a petting zoo. Music enthusiasts can enjoy live performances at the Lyman Amphitheater. Classic car enthusiasts will enjoy the Carolina Classic Car Club’s display, showcasing vehicles from the last century. Various food and drink trucks will be on-site to satisfy your cravings, and over 40 local artisans and community booths will be available for exploration. The celebration will continue into the evening with a Centennial Concert featuring Dirty Grass Soul from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the amphitheater. The day promises to be an exceptional occasion for residents to come together and for visitors to discover Lyman’s unique charm.
On Sunday, a Pacific Mills Reunion, open to former mill employees and those reminiscing about life in Lyman, will take place from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Lyman Event Center at Pacific Place. It will be a nostalgic afternoon with live jazz music, food, and shared memories.
