Food and Crafts Highlight ButlerFest

By  | 

There was plenty of fun and excitement in one West Alabama community on Friday and Saturday.

The 9th annual Butler Fest was held in downtown Butler. There were dozens of vendors on hand with all sorts of crafts on sale. There was also lots of food and even food contests. Organizers say there is nothing else in the area that draws a bigger crowd than Butler Fest.

"It's just a great, family oriented event," organizer Denna Nelmes says. "And our merchants support it, our community supports it, and of course our mayor and city council supports it."

Butler Fest wrapped up on Saturday evening. For more information, call 205-459-3795.
