Saturday night at the Tallahatchie Riverfest
A large crowd enjoyed music by the Eisenhauer Band, Raelyn Nelson and Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors before the evening’s headliner, Paul Thorn, took the stage with his excellent band of musicians. We missed Sam Mosely, who is recovering well from surgery, on the stage this year, but were happy to see him attending the festival and enjoying the music of his friend
SATURDAY “DAYTIME” AT THE RIVERFEST:
These folks were caught in the act…of enjoying some of the many daytime activities on Saturday, September 26th at Tallahatchie Riverfest. There is still time to catch a couple of musical acts and the fireworks!
FRIDAY , SEPTEMBER 25TH:
With temperatures on the Tallahatchie River a little below 70 degrees the crowd at the first night of the Tallahatchie Riverfest 2015 stayed cool while the music was hot.
Friday was also a good night to enjoy hot food from the dozen or more vendors arranged around the venue on the left bank of the river in downtown New Albany. Barbecue, hot dogs, funnel cakes, burgers, chicken-on-a-stick, there was something for every taste.
Saturday, is the main day of the annual Tallahatchie Riverfest with activities during the day including a 5K run, all kinds of markets and sidewalk sales, as well as music at the Tanglefoot Trailhead Plaza through the afternoon. There is a pet costume contest and parade for the kids, as well an entire kids’ area and education zoo.
The popular ferris wheel will offer an interesting view of the area, and all the vendors will be back with a wide variety of food, snacks and family friendly beverages.
The popular Eisenhauer Band will kick off the main musical event around 5PM, to be followed by Raelyn Nelson, then Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors. Paul Thorn will take the CSpire Stage around 9:30 to round out the evening’s music, and will be followed by the professional fireworks program that will close out this year’s Tallahatchie Riverfest.
