OurView — Festival a success

Farragut and West Knox County residents who attended the Festival on the Green event this past weekend were treated to a great time thanks to the event coordinators and participants.

Visitors had the option of seeing and purchasing some of the fine art produced by members of the Tennessee Artists’ Association and local crafters.

In addition to great deals on art, Saturday was indeed a highlight with music on the green provided by Wood, Wind and Wire, Jodi Manross and West Knox resident David Landeo, who had the audience literally dancing in the streets.

A review of the concerts will appear in next week’s farragutpress written by our own musician-in-residence, Preston Flanders.

Well done, organizers! But, don’t stop there. Make next year’s Festival on the Green bigger and better.

One suggestion does come to mind, though.

Next year how about a variety of food. A tent with Buddy’s Bar-B-Q would have been nice or even some of Randy Burleson’s Turtle Pie. A Tijuana Taco stand would have been nice. Something similar to the yearly fund-raiser the Knoxville Zoo holds each year. (Hint, hint!)

Overall, the event was worth attending and definitely should be noted on next year’s calendar as a “must go.”

In other business, the staff of the Farragut High School Anchor newspaper recently participated in a competition sponsored in part by the University of Tennessee and the Tennessee High School Press Association and came back with an arm load of awards.

Congratulations are due to each and every one of these budding journalists.
