The 2016 summer is officially over and as it moves out, festivals are falling into the area. Falkville is no different as they close the downtown area for their 19th Falkville Fall Festival Sat., Oct. 8.

Venders, games, city departments, food and music will all fall under the shelter of the town’s water tower that day. Hitting the streets doesn’t cost a thing, and the day is chock full of events starting at 7 a.m. at the Fire Hall with Falkville Volunteer Fire Department’s pancake breakfast. Attendees can then go run or walk off those breakfast calories in the 4th annual Color Me Downtown 5K Run/Walk.

Throughout the rest of the day, Morgan Countians as well as others from North Alabama will have the opportunity to take a look at some farming history with the Antique Tractor Show. Attendees will have a chance to check out the old tractors, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The festival’s antique tractor show is sponsored by the Falkville Fire Department and there will be prizes for first, second and third place in the show. Door prizes will be available at the show during the 

day. For more information on the antique tractor show, contact Tom Summerford at 256-227-2911. In that same vein, Falkville Fall Festival will also have its car show to check out during the day.

There will be games for both children and adults including bingo, arts and crafts throughout downtown, vendors on the street, a blood drive and bands there will be two stages set up for live entertainment.. This year, Falkville Fall Festival features local artists Jeff Whitlow and the Old Barn Band as well as 3 and Twenty, Charlie Farley and the Moonshine Bandits will headline the music event.

There will also be plenty of food.

There is still time to procure a spot downtown for the festival for vendors interested in participating. There are guidelines, but vendor need only fill out a form and pay their fee to reserve a spot at the annual festival.

For any additional questions, call the Falkville Fire Chief at 256-784-5922.
