On a busy day across the Mid-South, Millington had it’s share of seasonal celebrations Saturday.
One of the highlights was the annual closing of the Millington Farmer’s Market with the Fall Festivial. City of Millington officials joined regular vendors and several residents for a day of hay rides, face painting, games and much more to give the 2014 season a proper sendoff.
The Millington Farmer’s Market opens every first Saturday in May and closes the last Saturday of October. Patrons came to buy clothes, homemade food, jams, jellies, artwork and much more from vendors like Janet’s Craftalley, Marla’s Garden, Gama’s Garden N Goodies, Knife Sharpening with Mike and David Thomason and Holt Farm just to name a few.
While adults like Ruth Leech and Hazel Hodges were buying those goodies, children were snatching up handfuls of candy made possible the Millington Arts, Parks and Recreation staff.
Some of the youth like cousins MaKiah Wilson and LaShunda Small, both 6, made bird feeders and painted pumpkins. Sisters Jocelyn and Teagan Kannady displayed their creativity on their pumpkins. Meanwhile their little brother Gary was eyeing some more candy.
