A close competitor of these beloved Disney themes were the many political candidates of the Democratic and Republican Parties.
The sidewalks along both sides of Main Street were covered with candidates shaking hands, passing out cards, and discussing their platforms in hopes of soliciting votes in this upcoming November 6th election.
Over one hundred vendors lined the streets selling their goods and promoting their services along with the candidates.
Also, huge inflatables were available for children to spend a wonderful day in and feel the thrill of the festivities.
Entertainment was provided throughout the day by talents such as Daniel Mulkey, Katie Hills, and Ronny Kisor and friends.
One of the this year’s greatest hits was a personal ventriloquist who had several partners throughout the day.
At different appointed times, these two would entertained the crowd with such characters as Elvis, Dolly, Jimmy Durante, and others.
At any given time of the day you could find people gathered and watching these performances.
This year’s parade included the CCHS Marching Band who stopped in front of the Courthouse for a performance. Also included in the parade were several political candidates, antique cars and tractors, several horse drawn wagons and many riders.
A little bit after lunch exhibitors began packing up their goods and looking forward to next year’s successful Fall Festival in Centre, Alabama.
