Well goodness gracious my Fort Payne people and fans of Fort Payne, I always say that you do not have to be from Fort Payne to love Fort Payne just as long as you love it! Oh yeah, Good Saturday morning everyone and welcome Spring time we missed you.
Let us take a look back on last week’s activities which included our first Saturday Sunset Cruise-In and it did not disappoint. Amelia and her awesome team kicked it off with a bang. We had a great turnout of classic cars, local music and a nice balance of great food and treats. We cannot get all of this done without help from the City of Fort Payne, Fort Payne police department, Chris Roberts, Dan Patterson, and the fine people who share their cars with us. This is community at its finest.
I want to give Eddie Smith at Alabama Motorcars a huge thanks for the upgrade and restoration of one of Fort Payne’s oldest buildings. In a short time, Eddie has put his resources and creativity into his beautiful historic building. It was the original Rains Chevrolet dealership that opened in the twentieth century and we are so pleased that Eddie chose to bring this historic downtown building back to life. Thanks for sharing your art and cars with us.
Fort Payne Main Street Farmers Market is heading into its 3rd year and we are excited to offer this as one of our favorite Main Street events. We will have our first on Saturday May 26th located this year at the Rotary pavilion. It is a little late but old man winter would not give up this year so our farmers are a little late. I assure you it will be worth the wait when you bite into that first tomato sandwich of the year with a local farm raised tomato on it.
Fort Payne Main Street is soon to have our first discount card available with just our downtown merchants on it. The annual Alabama fan appreciation week is quickly heading toward us and we love celebrating the guys and the fans for a week. The date for that is June 14,15,16 and 17th, so stay tuned for the activities that always go with that. Yes, ladies and gentleman Fort Payne is a great place to live, love and laugh. Come be a part of our Main Street community life!
