The Standard Journal - - FRONT PAGE - From staff re­ports

Cedar­town’s an­nual Fall Fes­ti­val is com­ing up this week­end, and those who want to come out and en­joy the an­nual Shrine Pa­rade should find a spot to park and get to the Main Street side­walk be­fore a 10 a.m. start.

That means the Main Street will be closed down start­ing be­fore the 9 a.m. kick­off of the fes­ti­val from just above Ware Street to just be­low Sy­camore Street un­til it con­cludes this Satur­day af­ter­noon, and peo­ple will need to de­tour around if they don’t

wish to stop for the fun.

Lo­cals and vis­i­tors alike should be able to find park­ing off of Main Street with­out a prob­lem and ought to stop by and en­joy what prom­ises to be a busy day for all.

The fes­ti­val it­self will kick off at 9:30 a.m. with the first half a Hair and Fash­ion show be­ing put on in front of F.H.F. Hair De­sign at 303 Main Street, with the pa­rade to fol­low, and the sec­ond half of the fash­ion show af­ter at 10:45 a.m.

Satur­day’s fash­ion show in front of the Main Street sa­lon is be­ing put on by F.H.F. Hair De­sign, The Brave Spar­row and Nicki’s Dress Up Bou­tique.

The plans are to show­case what is in store for fall fash­ions avail­able at The Brave Spar­row and Nicki’s Dress Up Bou­tique, as well as the hair and make-up trans­for­ma­tions un­der­taken at F.H.F. Hair De­sign.

E v e n t s c o n t i n u e through­out the day with a Dog Show put on by the Cedar­town-Polk County Hu­mane So­ci­ety in the south Main Street park, an 11:30 a.m. fi­nale of the fash­ion show in front of F.H.F Hair De­sign, and then dance per­for­mances from 1 to 1:45 p.m. put on by the Cedar­town Acad­emy of Per­form­ing Arts Dance Stu­dio at the Hol­loway Park stage.

Down­town Cedar­town As­so­ci­a­tion Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Ra­mona Ruark said it’s nice to see the fes­ti­val have a lot more to of­fer for vis­i­tors and lo­cal res­i­dents alike.

Ruark added around 50 ven­dors with a va­ri­ety of arts and crafts, food, and more for sale will be lin­ing Main Street this Satur­day.

“We’ll have our food court be­tween Ed’s Cleaner’s and the Coca-Cola build­ing on Main Street,” Ruark said.

Ad­di­tion­ally, the day in­cludes the Polk County His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety’s ar­chae­ol­ogy day for youth ages 6 to 10 to al­low them to par­tic­i­pate in an ‘Ar­ti­fact Dig’ for $2 each. Each ju­nior ar­chae­ol­o­gist will get to keep one item that could range from shark teeth, glass beads, or even ar­row­heads.

The mu­seum will also be host­ing the Throt­tle Jock­eys in their park­ing lot to give vis­i­tors the chance to see clas­sic and an­tique cars from by­gone days.

Vis­i­tors will also get to en­joy watch­ing ar­row­heads be­ing made and spin­ning cot­ton on a wheel as part of the fes­tiv­i­ties as the mu­seum’s new lo­ca­tion at 117 West Ave.

The 41st an­nual Fall Fes­ti­val is hosted and spon­sored by the Down­town Cedar­town As­so­ci­a­tion.

Live mu­sic will also be among the at­trac­tions for the an­nual event, held in Cedar­town each year on the first week­end in Oc­to­ber. Busi­nesses down­town will also have side­walk sales and spe­cials dur­ing the fes­ti­val.
