The start of a cool morning did not deter people from experiencing The Ninth Annual Duck River Day Festival this past Saturday. People of all ages came out to Henry Horton State Park in large numbers to enjoy the many festivities offered at this year's festival which included a variety of food vendors, arts and crafts, face painting, a car show, bull riding, live music, and much more. WFMC Jams was on location and streamed the live music performances throughout the day for those who were not able to attend. Music enthusiasts both online and in person were able to enjoy live performances from Glenn Bazzel, Scott Southworth, The Howlin Embers, Stones River Bluegrass Band, and Johnny Collier and the Misbehaviators.
For those that may have missed out on this free event will be happy to hear about the upcoming events and exciting new enhancements to the park this year. The details were announced by Shaun Rainone at the music stage in a brief interview with Dallas Collier. A brand new building houses the new conference space called the Duck River Room as well as an exhibit space with all sorts of information about the Duck River. Additionally a brand new restaurant is opening up as well as the swimming pool within the coming weeks.
