"Different Strokes for Different Folks" is an ole wives tale many have grown up with for generations. This saying will fit during the next few weeks as 'fall' is ushered in when the leaves begin to gain color and decorate the hillsides of Cannon County.
Middle TN Mule Skinners will celebrate the 'fall' season with their Annual Fall Wagon Train. Many wagons and campers will set up at the Fairgrounds in town beginning Wednesday September 21 in preparation of the three-day wagon train.
During these three days, September 22, 23 & 24th the wagons will leave town at 9am and travel throughout the county to show off it's beauty.
Those especially enjoying the Cannon County Wagon Train is visitors from around Tennessee who make this event a regular on their calendar each year.
Grady George, Jr will serve as the official wagon master and works out just the perfect route for visitors. Participating in the wagon train is free to anyone and all are welcome.
Be sure and look for the wagon train to exit and enter town on these three days. Visitors always brag they enjoy coming to Cannon County because everyone makes them feel so welcome - what a compliment to our community.
Saturday October 29th the Cannon County Walking Horse Assoc. opens the campground and acreage to the public for their Annual Halloween Ride.
