FREE PANCAKES, MUSIC AND FUN IN FALKVILLE

 Confederate Railroad Slated to Headline Annual Free Event

Decatur, Ala. – The town of Falkville rolls out the red carpet for a day of free music, fun and games each year in October welcoming visitors to the rural hamlet. The Falkville Fall Festival, sponsored by the Falkville Volunteer Fire Department and the Town of Falkville, is set for October 29, 2011 and offers free pancakes, a car and tractor show, children’s activities, arts and crafts, and more culminating with country rock band Confederate Railroad live in concert. All activities take place in the town’s downtown area.

A free pancake breakfast at the Fire Department kicks things off at 7 a.m. where plenty of the fluffy hot cakes will be served until 11 a.m. Donations to the Fire Department will be accepted at the door. The car show and tractor show follow at 8 a.m. with arts and crafts vendors, bingo, inflatable fun for children, and food vendors set up throughout the day. The Fire Department will host a cake auction at noon where an assortment of yummy desserts will be up for grabs.

Music fills the air beginning at 11 a.m. with a 1 ½ hour performance by the Dusty Winsett Band followed by headliner Confederate Railroad taking to the stage at 1 p.m. The event wraps up around 3 p.m. Founded in 1984 in Marietta, Georgia, Confederate Railroad has released six albums with more than twenty singles earning a spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. Hits include “She Took It Like A Man,” “Queen of Memphis,” “Trashy Women,” “Daddy Never Was the Cadillac Kind,” and “Elvis and Andy.” In 1993, they were awarded Best New Group at the Academy of Country Music Awards with a Grammy nomination and a host of nominations from the Country Music Association and the British Country Music Foundation soon following. For more information, visit www.confederaterailroad.net.

The town has more to celebrate in 2011. This year marks its 125th anniversary of incorporation as a city, and to celebrate a time capsule will be buried during the one day festival. For more information on the annual event, contact the Falkville Town Hall at 256.784.5922.
