Putting together this year’s Good Ole Days of Cannon County festival has been a monumental struggle for organizers, but the big show will go on as planned this Friday and Saturday.

Following months of trying to find a suitable place to hold the event, which is normally held on the grounds of the Cannon County Courthouse, it was decided the best backup location would be the Cannon County Fairgrounds.

Festival-goers can still expect an exciting two days of events, including a parade, pageants, shows, live music, food and beverages and much more.

Good Ole Days of Cannon County is sponsored by the Senior Center and REACH Afterschool Programs, and is a key fundraiser for those agencies each year.

“The Good Ole Days festival has events for all ages,” Senior Center director Connie Rigsby said. “Beauty pageants from babies to the Ms. Senior pageant. Music from gospel, bluegrass, country, southern rock to hard rock can be heard during the two day event.

“People should be sure to check out the beautiful jewelry, crafts and handbags,” Rigsby added. “Plus there will be a wide variety of food vendors and even a chance to go up in a hot air balloon. It’s fun for the entire family. Bring your lawn chair and sit back and meet your neighbors.”

Pageants span the weekend and include the Sr. Miss Good Ole Days, Little Miss Good Ole Days, Jr. Miss Good Ole Days, Baby Show (Birth to age 5 years), Miss Teen Good Ole Days, and Miss Good Ole Days. Other events include: Dog Show, Backyard Pickin’ and Grinning, and so much more.

“It’s fun for all ages and brings the community together like no other event during the year,” Angela King, REACH director, said. “We look forward to holding it each year because its an exciting time for us as well.”
