OCTOBER 7, 2019 | FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LINDALE, TX – Fall in Lindale means a few of my favorite things: Friday Night football with friends, cooler temperatures, and most importantly CountryFest!
Saturday, October 12, 2019, will be the biggest CountryFest ever in downtown Lindale at Blackberry Square. Since 1984, the Lindale Area Chamber of Commerce has coordinated Lindale’s CountryFest. In 2017, CountryFest was the largest event in downtown Lindale and it is only, possible because of a coordinated effort by the Lindale Area Chamber of Commerce, numerous Community Organizations, the City of Lindale/Visit Lindale, and The Cannery Lindale. This family friendly event entertains thousands of visitors and residents, with arts and crafts, games for the kids, great food, live entertainment, and much more! Every year added variety is given to the expanding crowds. Get up early and stay late, because you are all invited to Lindale for the day!
It all starts in downtown Lindale with the Altra Federal Credit Union Harvest Hustle 5K scheduled at 8:30 a.m., with a portion of the proceeds to benefit: David Powell Food Pantry, LISD Education Foundation, Lindale Fire Department, and Lillie Russell Memorial Library. The Harvest Hustle will begin in the heart of Lindale with check-in taking place in front of The Cannery Stage, adjacent to the Lindale “Pickers Pavilion”. This year’s race is coordinated with locally owned and operated iTri365 Timing & Event Productions and the first 250 to cross the finish line will receive a participation medal. Runners will “get their legs under them” on the flat first half mile traveling through a residential area east on North Street, then turn north onto the challenging rural rolling hills of Iron Mountain Road! The back stretch for runners will again be the rolling hills of Iron Mountain Road, to the west turn onto North Street for the half mile dash to the finish!
Following the Harvest Hustle 5K, stroll through the arts and craft booths, gobble a turkey leg, visit the car show, and bid on auction items. Live music will be playing on the TXM stage and The Cannery Stage all day for your entertainment!
