Hooray for Harriman’s Labor Day Festival is a tradition of family entertainment, and the same holds true as the festival kicks off
at 10 a.m. today, Monday.
“Hooray for Harriman is a true family friendly event,” said organizer Randy Ellis.
“We have something for everyone,” he continued. “It’s a time for friends and family to come together and celebrate the love for our city.”
The event will have arts, craft, jewelry, local sports and cheerleading clubs with fundraising booths and a large NASCAR racing track where people can pay a small fee to race a remote-control car.
The festival will also still have Kids’ Alley with inflatables.
The festival will continue until 6 p.m. in downtown Harriman.
This year’s festival again utilizes the Princess Theatre for musical entertainment starting at noon.
Weston Burt, who Ellis calls an up-and-coming country artist, will perform.
His website, westonburt.com, showcases his single “Lucky Sometimes.”
A period of gospel music will start at 1:30 p.m. featuring The Joyaires.
They will be followed by The Singing Cookes at 2 and The Cooke Brothers at 3.
People continue to go to the Labor Day street festival every year for Tennessee Mountain Wrestling, which will kick off at 4 p.m.
This year’s featured renowned wrestling performers include K-town Daddy Terry Landel, WWE Hall of Fame member Cowboy Bob Orten and former WCW champion Jimmy Golden as well as Ronnie Garvin.
