Save the Date: ‘Our Businesses Past and Present’


HUNTINGDON — As part of the city’s year-long Bicentennial Celebration, “Our Businesses Past and Present” will be in downtown Huntingdon Saturday, June 11.

The event, held to honor Huntingdon’s businesses throughout the years, begins at 4 p.m. with a mock trial at the Carroll County Courthouse. Local attorneys will enact “The Big Bad Wolf v The Three Little Pigs.” Limited general seating is available to attendees, who will act as jurors.

From 6-8 p.m., local bluegrass band Scattered Grass will perform live on the Carroll County Courthouse Steps. Members of Scattered Grass are from several Tennessee counties including Carroll, Benton, Decatur, Henderson, and Davidson County. Performing June 11 are Malcolm Allen, Greg Mann, Alli Mann, Sammy McAdams, “Flash” Gordon Shirley, Justin Reno, and Dana Wyatt.

Throughout the event, from 4-8 p.m., guests are encouraged to take a bus tour or a self-guided walking tour through Huntingdon’s historic Court Square.

Farmer’s Perk and Hometown Hangout food trucks and several favorite local establishments, will be open during the event.

Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, dress in 1800s attire, visit local shops and small businesses, play old fashioned board games on the Court House Lawn, and celebrate Huntingdon’s businesses – past and present – at “Our Businesses Past and Present.”
