Come join the residents of Enterprise Alabama on October 22, 2011 for the annual Boll Weevil Festival from 9:00am to 3:00pm
This annual event celebrates what Enterprise is known for; the little boll weevil bug. Enterprise is famous for the Boll Weevil Monument, a large monument of a woman holding a Boll Weevil, which is located in the town square. Enterprise put up the statue because the destruction of the cotton crop had led to agricultural diversity, starting with peanuts and more prosperity than had ever come from cotton alone. The Boll Weevil stature is the only statue to an insect pest in the world standing as a reminder of how the city adjusted in the face of adversity.
On October 22 from 9am to 3pm the city of Enterprise along with neighboring towns and communities will come together for fun, food, music and entertainment. In addition to this there will be arts and crafts vendors, variety of music, food, children's costume contest and activities, farmers market, and a car show.
