CULLMAN, Ala. – Chambers Farm and Garden Supply held its second annual fall festival Saturday, continuing its effort to bring the community and its customers together.

Judy Snead of Snead’s Farmhouse was an organizer of the event, which had a strong turnout for its first year and an even bigger showing this year.

In all, 63 vendors set up booths with arts and crafts and food items for sale. There were plenty of kids’ activities, including face painting, bounce houses and a balloon artist. Eight different vendors brought animals to create a petting zoo with pigs, goats, ducks and chickens. Most of the vendors who participated in the festival are customers and supporters of Chambers.

Owner Chris Chambers spoke about the inspiration for the event, saying, “This is just something for the community to do and for us to give back and do like a customer appreciation day. Our customers support us, and we wouldn’t be able to do it without them.”

Live music was performed by Chuck Carpenter, who also teaches at Tony’s School of Music.

Snead deemed the event a success, smiling, “We had more animals this year, and we hope to expand with animals next year. We had a great turnout.”
