Officials say vendors are still needed to make this year’s Hooray for Harriman the best yet.
Event chairman Randy Ellis said anyone interested in participating in the city’s yearly Labor Day festival can go online to http://hoorayforharriman.info/ to find out more information.
He could also use more donations for the event, which is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 2, 2013.
This year’s festival will continue many of the traditional attractions —  including live music at Princess Theatre.
“We are going to have two gospel groups: The Singing Cooks and The Cook Bros. The local gospel group is the Joyaires out of Oliver Springs,” Ellis said.
An up-and-coming country performer named Weston Burt will be at the Princess that day, as well. 
“He’s even got a profile on CMT. He’s got music videos,” Ellis said.
Tennessee Mountain Wrestling will  feature five matches.
“People get crazy about wrestling,” Ellis said.
Wrestlers will include The K-town Daddy, Terry Landell; former National Wrestling Alliance heavyweight champion Ronnie Garvin; World Wrestling Entertainment hall of fame member Cowboy Bob Orton Jr.; and former World Championship Wrestling’s Bunkhouse Bunk Jimmy Golden.
A kids alley with inflatables and games will also be featured at the festival.
