It's Oktober Heritage Festival Time!

Yard sales, live music, car shows and a tree climbing competition


October 8, 2020

The air has fallen to a crisp 70 degrees just in time for you to grab your most comfortable pair of walking shoes and test the age-old saying "one man's junk is another man's treasure" on Friday and Saturday, October 9 and 10.

Grab yourself some food from this year's wide selection of food trucks and vendors. You can satisfy just about any craving from good ol' New Orleans cuisine to sweet apple fritters and the ol' reliable cheeseburgers and hotdogs.

Make sure to go by Main Street in downtown Hohenwald. There will also be a Kids Corner, sponsored by Linda Malone's Inflata-World. There will be a huge inflatable slide for your kids to run up and slide down, and run up and slide down, and run up and slide down again until their hearts are content. Once they get tired of the slide, parents can then point them towards an inflatable obstacle course all while listening to live music.

Burgermeister Deanna Darden-Carroll will kick off the opening ceremonies at 1 p.m. Friday.

Sonny Holley has hand-picked some of the best musicians around Lewis County. The live music is slated for 1 - 9 p.m. on Friday, October 9, and 11 - 9 p.m. on Saturday, October 10.

This year, there will be no shortage of entertainment as there will even be a tree climbing competition! Local Brandon Stoner of Timbersmithx has teamed up with Lewis County Chamber of Commerce to bring 22 qualified arborists to the town centre for a climbing competition.

The competition will take place at Lewis County Memorial Park on Friday, October 9th, at 7:00 a.m. Each climber will run a 20 minute Master Challenge. The 10 top climbers will perform a 30 minute masters challenge on private property Saturday. There will also be a recreational climb and a kids climb tree, for those who are brave enough to try. Face painting will also be available by Most Supreme Face Painting.

The annual Car and Truck Show will be happening again this year at the Courthouse parking lot, along with the Big Rig Cruise-In. Funds from both events will be donated to the Lewis County Cancer Victims Fund. Registration for the car show will be from 8 a.m. until 12 noon and the registration fee is $20 per vehicle plus $15 for each additional. Awards will be given at 3 p.m.

Give a special thanks to the Lewis County Chamber of Commerce as they have worked incredibly hard for an Oktoberfest that is sure to be unforgettable.
