It’s that time of year again! On September 8, 2012, the 13th annual Fayette County Cotton Festival is coming to the Somerville, TN town square. This a wonderful local event that’s great for the whole family. There will be a children’s art contest that will be open to children in grades K-6 enrolled in Fayette county schools (public or private, or homeschooled students living in Fayette county). On August 18, there will be the Ms. Fayette County Cotton Festival Beauty Pageant held at First Baptist Church in Oakland. There will also be the annual Cotton Pickin 5K (my very first 5K I ever completed!), benefitting Fayette Cares, held at 8:30am on September 8 at First United Methodist Church. Follow any of the links to get more information for any of these events or to register online. Registration is also open for vendors, sponsors and volunteers. Everyone come out and have fun at the Cotton Festival!
