Falkville offers free family fun at festival
Free musical entertainment for everybody and free kids rides on inflatables will be featured as a part of Falkville’s annual Fall Festival on Saturday from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The free kids area is sponsored by three local churches – Victory Fellowship, Fairview Church of God and First Baptist Church.
The event, sponsored by the town’s volunteer fire department, will get underway with a pancake breakfast in the fire hall. The doors will open at 6 a.m. and stay open as long as there’s a customer to serve. There is no admission but a donation is requested.
Free live entertainment will begin under a big tent at 11 a.m. with the Dusty Winsett Band performing. Well-known country band Confederate Railroad will entertain from 1 to 2:30 p.m.
Other featured activities will include a wide variety of food and street vendors, an antique and classis car show, antique tractor show, cake auction and bingo.
A special attraction in keeping with the town’s 125th birthday will be the sealing of a time capsule at 2:45 p.m. The capsule will contain information of interest for future generations including recorded interviews with some of the town’s senior citizens.
Street vendor spaces will remain available until the day of the festival. They may be obtained by calling Bonnie Thompson at 256-784-5922.
Fire Chief Chris Free is serving as festival chairman.
