This year’s Hooray for Harriman will have all the ingredients that have people returning to Roane Street each year for Labor Day fun.

Those ingredients include wrestling, and Tennessee Mountain Wrestling will be back at the Labor Day Festival on Monday, Sept. 1.

Organizer Randy Ellis said the lineup for the wrestling, which begins at 4 p.m. includes K-Town Daddy Terry Landell; WWE Hall of Fame wrestler Bob Orton, father of current WWE wrestler Randy Orton; and former WCW champion Jimmy Golden.

Also part of the success of the street festival is gospel singing in the Princess Theatre.

That’s true again this year, beginning at 11 a.m. Those performing will include Victorious which includes Dudley Evans.

“They are really good,” Ellis said.

Others include the legendary Southern Gospel family The Singing Cookes at 2 p.m., along with The Cooke Brothers.

Pastor Nick Hill with Epic Church, formerly Courts of Praise of Harriman, will be performing with a group.

Kids Alley will once again feature activities, including inflatables, for the youngest festival-goers.

Ellis said they are still looking for vendors. Visit www.hoorayforharriman.com/ for more information.
