The Radio City Bluegrass Band performs Saturday afternoon at the Fall for Downtown Folk Fest on Broad Street.
Hundreds of folks turned out for this festival despite rain, and many vendors of crafts, food and other items stayed into the afternoon on the rain-drenched Saturday. The event was sponsored by Lamplight Theatre and the Downtown Kingsport Association.
The sponsors decorated downtown in a fall theme for the event, which also included inflatables for children and food of all sorts. Photos below include Shabby Allie's Boutique vintage furniture and decorative items, New Life Art Reclaimed Material art, which had the flaming stones and bottles with lights inside as well as bowls and other items made from old newspapers.
Performers on the stage in the middle of Broad Street included the Radio City Bluegrass Band, in the main photo, as well as later in the afternoon the Tennessee Hoedowners from Hawkins County. Lamplight also had performances inside the former Strand Theater, where Lamplight recently relocated, throughout the day. And the 1915 Ford Model T is owned and was driven by Brent Terry of Elizabethton.
