Weekend events offer plenty of options for fun in Selma

Published 7:44 pm Friday, October 9, 2015

The month of October is off to a fast, busy start with plenty of activities for people in Selma and Dallas County to do. People sometimes complain about having nothing to do, but for such a small town, Selma has plenty to offer this weekend and throughout the rest of the month.

Today will be the last day people can go to the Central Alabama Fair, which has been in town all week long. If the first night of the fair was any indication of how much money the Lion’s Club will raise from the fair, then many of their projects will benefit from people riding rides and enjoying all of the food and fun the fair has to offer.

Today is also the second and last day of the 37th annual Kathryn Tucker Windham Tale Tellin’ Festival, which is being held at Wallace Community College Selma at 6 p.m. The festival has some of the best storytellers to offer, featuring Bil Lepp, Kim and Reggie Harris and Wanda Johnson.

Wallace will also play host to a 5K color run and a one-mile fun color run to help raise awareness for breast cancer. A race is a great, healthy way to raise money for a good cause. The race is from 8-10:30 a.m.

If people aren’t up for riding rides, telling stories or running, the 14th annual Keenan’s Mill Festival will be going on from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. The festival will have live music, stone-ground cornmeal, arts and crafts vendors and kids activities. Tickets are $5 for adults and $2 for children.

Whether it is the fair or one of the other many events going on this weekend, we encourage everyone to get out and take part in the fun activities Selma has to offer.
