Falkville celebrates fall

(L) Mayor Jimmie Walker and Councilman Matt Stiles unveil a historical marker in front of the old Falkville Town Hall and renovated town library during last weekend’s Fall Festival.

Event attracts large crowds

A sunshine-filled fall day filled with fun and excitement for the entire family attracted a large crowd of people to Falkville’s annual Fall Festival on Saturday.
A highlight of the event occurred shortly after noon when Mayor Jimmy Walker and Town Councilman Matt Stiles unveiled a permanent historic marker at the corner of the original town hall and renovated public library. It was presented by the State Tourism Department in recognition of the town’s participation in “Great Alabama Homeoming: Year of Small Towns and Downtowns. “
The marker recognizes the town hall building and water tower as a historic landmark dating to the 1930s. The water tower was removed form service in 2004 and repainted as a part of the Great Homecoming observance. The lower floor of the town hall was recently renovated and upgraded with the assistance a state grant and local and county contributions.
Rhona Howell Summerford, the late Vernon Ayre and Councilman Stiles served on the Homecoming 2010 Committee.
“Our pancake breakfast was well attended and we had more antique classic cars and tractors in town than we anticipated,” said project chairman Chris Free, police and fire chief. “We also had more businesses, community organizations and politicians rent booth spaces than ever before. Plus, we had a lot of people from out-of-town come for the entertainment.” One family of five from Haleyville said the popular band, Shenandoah, is what attracted them.”
Other popular fundraisers were a cake auction and bingo sponsored by the Parks and Recreation Department.
