Midway Fall Festival to be held Saturday and Sunday

The 38th annual Midway Fall Festival will be held this weekend, and Mayor Tom Bozarth and Midway Business Association President Grayson Vandegrift promoted it on today's noon-hour news on WLEX-TV, Channel 18.

"There's something for everybody," Vandegrift said, but indicated that the festival is not just about quantity, but also about quality in arts, crafts and food: "We're very selective about vendors we accept."

Bozarth said the event is a big homecoming for former residents: "We have a lot of people who come back to Midway who have moved away, and every year they come back to the Fall Festival."

A recent survey of visitors, residents and business owners found that the festival was clearly the most popular annual event in the Midway area.

The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Old Smokey (in photo), the steam locomotive of R.J. Corman Railroad, will be on display Saturday. For details on the festival, go to its website.
