FAIRVIEW, Ala. – The Fairview Lions Club’s annual Labor Day Extravaganza featured a car show, vendors and a community parade down Wesley Avenue to Randall Shedd Community Park Monday.

“It’s just been a good day, a real good day,” said Fairview Lions Club President William Criscoe. “I think it’s our biggest yet; I believe it’s a little bigger, a little better. We’re just trying to provide something for the community. We have a pretty good crowd, too.”

Fairview Town Clerk Debbie Shedd said the Labor Day parade has been an annual happening in the town for 25 years.

“We have other things we do, too, through the year,” said Criscoe. “We’ll have a Christmas parade coming up in December, a fall festival coming up in October, so we try to keep something going every month or so.”

Criscoe expressed his thanks to the community.

“We just appreciate the community,” he said. “Bro. David Chambers was the grand marshal (of the parade) from Fairview First (Baptist Church), doing good work in the community. It’s just a small, close-knit community and we enjoy the times that we can do something like this.”
