Have you heard about the Athens Storytelling Festival??  Well, if not, I'm here to let you know!  When I heard Storiesabout this I thought what a great event.  It will be held on the Marion Street side of the Limestone County Courthouse.  The Festival will be October 26 and 27 from 10 am to 10 pm.  There will be lunch and dinner breaks during the day.  Tickets for the festival are $20 per day or $30 for the entire event.

ghostAlso, after the festival is over on October 26th, there will be ghost stories told in Big Springs Memorial Park!!  WOO...might be too scary for me!  Tickets for the Friday night ghost stories are $5 each.

You can get tickets from Pablo's or Limestone County Chamber of Commerce Tourism Office.  Volunteers are also needed to help with the event.  Any student volunteers must be 15 years of age or older.  If you would like to volunteer, you can email for more information.

Are they ghost stories, or good old time stories in general? I love listening to a good Southern story teller. That, and wishing I could get decent country ham and red eye gravy in Arizona makes me wish I could go there for a couple of days.

During the day are just good old time stories and then the ghost stories are after the end of the festival on Friday night!!  Country ham and red eye gravy is an old southern favorite.  You are making me hungry Jim!!

Kimberly-maybe Alabama isn't too far away for me. :))  This looks like so much fun for the family.  I hope you and everybody in your community enjoy your time at the festival.

Kimberly, I am a HUGE reader so that sounds like so much fun.  I wanted my children to have the same love of reading as me and at age 22 and 25 they do.  Anything that can promote reading is GREAT!!!

I hear a group of REALTORS are going to get together afterward to tell horror stories about their respective markets.

Just kidding of course. I enjoy reading your blog.

Kimberly, while I really enjoy your market updates and subdivision spotlights, this is great stuff to. I keep on hearing (around Birmingham) that Huntsville really has some great things happening. Now, I see what they are talking about.

Hi Kimberly, the Storytelling Festival sounds like fun! It has prompted me to look around to see if there's anything in my area like that.

Kimberly, How fun. I used to be the story teller (once a week) at our local library. I loved seeing the look on the kids faces as I read them Halloween stories.
