HANCEVILLE, Ala. – The Hanceville City Council granted several requests in preparation for several festivals and events taking place in Hanceville in the coming weeks. Over the next several weekends, there will be many opportunities for some Halloween fun with the kids as well as great shopping and entertainment. 

Saturday, October 23, the 30th Annual Mud Creek Marching Festival will welcome talented marching bands from around the state. At least 30 bands have been registered for this year’s marching festival. This will be an all-day affair beginning at 10:00 a.m. at Hanceville High School. The festival will feature a special exhibition performance by the University of North Alabama Marching Band. The event is hosted by the Hanceville Bulldog Marching Band and band boosters. 

Hanceville’s Mud Creek Arts and Crafts Festival will be taking place during the morning and afternoon of the 23rd in Downtown Hanceville. The council waived the vendor fees for those wishing to participate in the festival. The council also approved closing Commercial and Bangor Streets to accommodate the festival. 

On Friday, October 29, Hanceville Elementary will have a trunk-or-treat for students during regular school hours. The council granted the request to close Bulldog Lane for the duration of the event. 

Sunday, Oct. 31 from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m., bring your kids to the Hanceville Fall Festival in downtown Hanceville. Nolan Bradford, who is helping coordinate the event, along with several Hanceville area churches, asked the council to close Commercial, Blountsville and other roads if needed for the event. He also asked for help from those in the community to bring a truck and participate in the trunk-or-treat. If you or your business is interested in joining in on the fun, contact Bradford.
