Farmersville gets down for Fall Festival

By Andrea Camarena

Farmersville residents took to the streets on Saturday, Oct. 7, lining both sides of the city's main boulevard for the 2006 Fall Festival. From the Hock Shop sale, to the car show, to the youth talent show, the festival had a little something for everyone in town.

The festival featured a live auction and several food and activity booths that raised a total $1,900 for various non-profit organizations throughout the community.

A live auction of Raiders memorabilia and bicycles raised money for the Kiwanis while various food and game booths raised money for the Farmersville High School CSF and Key Clubs.

The talent show, open to all local youth, was once again a showcase of dancing, singing and instrumental performances.

Three winners were awarded cash prizes. Jurell Harris, a member of the local Victory Outreach Church took first place for his acapella version of &#8220Amazing Grace.” He received a $100 prize.

The Farmersville Aztec Dance Team took second place and received a $50 prize for their routine.

Third place and $25 went to Carla Rodriguez of Visalia for her solo violin performance.

The Fall festival will return next autumn to Farmersville.
