The 2010 Foothills Fall Festival has been rescheduled for October 8, 9, and 10, 2009. The change from the earlier announced dates is a result of election activities for fall 2010.
Because 2010 is an election year, and the early voting process will be held at the Blount County Courthouse from Oct.13 - 28, planners opted to change the festival dates.
“While County officials graciously offered to work with us on scheduling and coordination, we felt that moving the dates was the best option for everyone in order to maintain the best schedule for early voting and to eliminate the conflicting traffic and parking issues around the courthouse that are necessary to operate the festival,” said Jane Groff, event coordinator. “We understand the need for many individuals and organizations in our community to schedule activities, vacations and functions with or around the festival and are eager to get the message about the festival dates.”
