Third Annual Darrtown Fall Festival

Darrtown, Ohio– “I may be 94 years-old, but the fall festival gives me a lot of excitement!” Ida May, oldest living resident of Darrtown, said Saturday, Sept. 9, 2017.

From skillet-tossing and tractor-tire flipping to a parade full of old classic cars and freshly polished tractors, the festival had it all. People young and old gathered in the streets of the only Darrtown in the world, according to resident Fred Lindley, for the third annual Darrtown Fall Festival. Many locals came out to celebrate this small town in the south corner of Ohio. Ms. Ruppert, TMS teacher, said “it’s a fantastic day for having this event, being here at the Darrtown Festival gives a chance to enjoy being with a lot of friends and being a family really. It’s a wonderful day.”

Ms. Gregory, THS teacher and FCCLA advisor, said the parade was great, the weather was beautiful, and it was good to see friends from the area. Her daughter was in the parade.

In addition, THS Marching Band helped to lead the parade. Mr. Marston, band director, said: “The band really enjoyed being a part of the Darrtown Parade. The band really likes being a part of the community.”

Sheradyn Proffitt, THS junior and color guard member, said of the parade: “It was pretty lit.”

The Darrtown Festival was started by the Darrtown Reunion Committee to fulfill their mission of preserving the history and artifacts of Darrtown while promoting “the spirit of community.” More information can be found
