When is the last time you, or your kids, saw a working Blacksmith or watched corn being ground in to corn meal? It doesn’t happen very often in one spot – but, it gets even better! Not only will you find a working Blacksmith and a grist mill, but at the Russell Crossroads Fall Family Festival you’ll be treated to horseback rides, tons of games on the lawn, face painting and pumpkin carving, hotdogs, lemonade – this year we are adding Fall Festival BINGO(we’ll tell you how it works) and LOTS more!
If you have a favorite recipe for a pie(pecan, chocolate, buttermilk, be creative, we had a few cheese cakes last year) or if you love canning things like pickles, eggs, jelly or preserves, peppers, etc. then you really should enter the old fashion Canning/Baking Contest! OF course there are Blue Ribbons up for grabs and gift cards for food too. Keep checking back for all the details!
Join us on the Town Green at Russell Crossroads for a great time! For more info call Robert at 256-397-1019.
It’s a lot of fun – take a look at this short video of the 2016 Fall Family Festival
