The Fall Festival was held this weekend around the courthouse square in Nashville and scores of visitors came out for the event. The Fall Festival is put on annually by the Nashville Chamber of Commerce.

“It went fantastic, the turnout was really impressive,” said Chamber President Tom Speedie. “We had great weather and that always helps, so there was a good turnout both days.”

“It’s great that we have a variety of activities and entertainment and a huge cross-section of the town comes out and enjoys it,” Speedie went on. “We have some of the entertainment from the schools, and the bands, and the food, and the bouncy houses– I think we had a little bit more of that this year than last year, and the FFA and it just all seemed to go really well this year.”

Plans are in place to continue the tradition of Fall Festival in 2016 as well.

“This was our 35th annual Fall Festival,” Speedie said, “so we’re looking forward to 36 next year.”

With Fall Festival over, the Chamber moves on to its next big event, a golf scramble scheduled for 2 p.m. on Thursday, October 8, at the Nashville Golf Course.

The scramble is a nine-hole event for four-person teams. The cost is $50 per person which covers golf, cart, food and beverages. Any Chamber member or anyone employed by a Chamber member is welcome to enter a team in the event.

For more information or to register for the scramble, contact Chamber Director Doris Povolish at 327-3700, or Chamber board member Jim Dalaviras at 327-4320.
