Hundreds of vendors, even more attendees, perfect weather and even a visit from Santa Claus and the Grinch were all part of Saturday’s 15th annual Fall on Main festival in Roanoke.
The event was a day featuring music, food, art, and community interaction in the warm, sunny environs of downtown Roanoke.
Over 200 vendors set up shop downtown and Main Street was closed from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. to allow pedestrian foot traffic to flow freely.
There was a photo booth for attendees to get their picture taken with Santa Claus, an attraction that was provided by the Roanoke Rotary Club. The Grinch was also on hand to try to add to (or spoil) the festive vibe.
Some of the other attractions at the event included replica vehicles from the movie “Smokey and the Bandit,” a kids’ zone that included a petting zoo, games and other fun activities, face painting stations, balloon animals, train rides and all of the various wares displayed and sold by the local vendors.
The event is coordinated by the Randolph County Chamber of Commerce and director Dorothy Tidwell. The Chamber received a grant from the Alabama State Council on the Arts to help fund this year’s event.
