Sale City holds Fall Festival

SALE CITY, GA (WALB) -

Good food, good music, and a whole lot of fun is how many folks described Saturday's Fall Festival in Sale City.

"They haven't had a Fall Festival in quite a long time so we're bringing it back. This is our first year and we've had a wonderful turnout," said City Clerk Tara Gardner.

City officials say like with in many small towns, the economy hit Sale City hard. 

That's why Gardner wanted locals and outsiders to see the town's potential Saturday.

Gardner says she hopes this Fall Festival begins a long term revitalization of Sale City. "Hopefully one day all of these buildings that you see will be refurbished in our gym so that we can put small businesses back in America."

Gardner says plans are in place for the town of 400 to thrive once again. "We're looking at projecting an after school program, a battle of the bands for revitalization, and the community feels that we need to get back to the basics and use the gifts that God's given you and bring our small towns back to life."

Proceeds from Saturday's raffles will go towards the Sale City library, meals on wheels, and other community programs.
