Numerous area businesses, churches and non-profit organizations are participating and will be giving away free items and discount coupons on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Children’s area will include “Inflatable Fun”, a unique play area for children who will be all smiles and have loads of fun as they jump, climb and super slide all under the watchful eye of a trained staff. Face-painting will be available from 2 local artisans, Heather Pugh and Lori Campbell.
Music will be provided by the Nomadz, a Blountville-based band known across the U.S. for its versatility. Comprised of five musicians and vocalists, the ensemble has been compared to the Doobies and Grateful Dead, but with an Appalachian blues influence of Goose Creek or the Metro Blues Allstars. Headed up by Jim Graybeal, Sonny Leonard, Adam Graybeal, Jason Malone and Travis Arend, the group will delight buyers and sellers alike with some of that 50s-60s rock-and- roll!
Additional instrumental music will be provided by Tommy Rose, a former member of the Washington Redskins Pro Football League Band, and a member of Jamboree USA. A guest star on the Grand Old Opry, Mr. Rose also played as a senator in the Walt Disney movie, “Love Leads the Way” which also starred Patricia Neal. He was also an actor on “I-40 Paradise” on the Nashville Network, and has performed in various places across the U.S.
