Central Alabama Fall Festival in Selma Called a “Mild Success”
Organizers of the Central Alabama Fall Festival in Selma say this year’s event was a mild success. The festival replaced the annual Central Alabama Fair because of COVID-19 concerns.
Manager John Haskell says attendance was better than expected, but still only reached about 60% of the numbers from last year’s fair.
CDC guidelines for COVID-19 protection were followed during the five-day event.
As we reported last month, this year, there were no pageants, performances, arts and craft exhibits or a petting zoo .
Haskell says there were no COVID-related issues reported.
The event is sponsored by the Selma Lions Club.
