Sierra Hull Festival set for Oct. 8th

I just wanted to say "Thank You" to everyone who bought a tenderloin dinner in support of the 9th Annual Sierra Hull Festival. We pre-sold about 100 tickets and cooked all morning last Friday. Hope everyone enjoyed. We thought that if it went well and folks wanted us to, we might do it again later.
It won't be long until the Festival is here. It is October 8th and will be held at the old Osh-Kosh parking lot. This years Festival lineup will include Sierra Hull & Hwy 111, JC and Last Resort, and Chris Scruggs who was a former member of BR-549 and is the grandson of Earl Scruggs. There will also be a Band Competition with a 1st prize of $1000.00, 2nd $500.00, and 3rd $250.00.
There will also be a Cruise-In included this year with the help of some local sponsors. Be sure and spread the word about this years Festival and come on out and enjoy an evening of good food, entertainment, and a variety of vendors.
