Comments:Huge outdoor festival celebrating the farmer and the contribution they make to our healthy living. Lots of arts and crafts, country cooking, barbecue cooking competition (Memphis in May sanctioned), live music, and most importantly a dog pageant. Our last years Tail Waggin' pageant raised money for several non profit organizations that rescue and/or adopt dogs. We hope to do even more this year. With so few "dog friendly" activities in Alabama, getting the word out about what your company offers would definitely be welcomed by dog owners. We could use any and all donations either in our "goody bags" to our contestants, our prize packages, or just to give out to the visitors to the booth. Either way, any and all donations are greatly appreciated. There are also numerous sponsorships for our event still available. These can be viewed on our website and all contact information is there also.
