The Blackwater Fall Festival will have an abundance of vendors and shops to look through while you enjoy your day out. “We have 38 vendor’s this year,” said Casteel, “They range from pumpkins to custom made soap to crochet items. We have the regular items like Avon, Plexus, and It Works. We have leather goods, flee market items, toys and collectables. Then we have to large food vendors plus Lions Club will be set up serving food also. Make sure you visit all these vendors, but come in the stores too. We have lots of unique items in the stores also, from custom made gifts to antiques and Indian blankets. There is something for everybody here, no matter age, style, anything.”
While strolling about, be sure to make plans to watch the wild west re-enactments. “South Fork Regulators, they do wild west re-enactments,” Casteel said, “They stand out on the square and perform a little play. Each one is different, one might be that they broke out of jail or maybe they’re robbing a bank, then they go after them and have a shoot out.”
