The Town of Rockford will be hosting Spring Fling downtown tomorrow, welcoming vendors, food trucks, agencies, and guests to town.
The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and will feature activities for the youth, various food vendors, non-profits, local candidates, and vendors with wares for shoppers to peruse.
Guests are encouraged to bring their chairs and stay a while, with the opportunity to enjoy music during the event.
Spring Fling will include a bounce house and wet slide for the youth, as well as carnival games and cotton candy.
As of press time, food vendors who had signed up to participate in the town’s event included Robert Milam with boiled peanuts, Ernie’s Hot Dogs, Memphis to Bama BBQ, Urban Pops popsicles, Aww Shucks roasted corn, Vanilla Heaven with assorted baked goods, street tacos with Mayra Perales, and Melvin and Katherleen Larmon with bakery items.
Vendors who signed up with items to sell included Muscadine Creek Creamery with goat’s milk soaps; Paparazzi Jewelry; Three Moon Harvest with herbs; Penny Dean with pot holders, scrunchies and more; Victoria Bean with candles; Olde Town Boutique with hats, T-shirts and car freshies; Tina Fuller with decorator gifts; and Alex’s Design with door hangers.
Non-profit agencies that will be set up at the event include Coosa County Department of Human Resources, Bridgeways and the Coosa County Animal Shelter.
Those who have signed up for business or personal promotional tables include attorney Nancy Kirby and local candidates Michael Howell, Raymond “Frankie” Jones and Travis Milhan.
Anyone who is interested in signing up for a vendor spot for selling items or promoting a non-profit or other business can contact Town Hall for complete details at 256-377-1076.
Since the highway will be lined with vendors and guests tomorrow, the Rockford Police Department reported that for the safety of the pedestrians and vendors the downtown area along U.S. Highway 231 will be reduced to two lanes for the event.
The police department asks that everyone slow down and be alert if driving through during Spring Fling.
