Spring Hill to hold Country Ham Festival
If you find yourself south of town on Oct. 5 and 6, by all means head straight to The John Maher Builders Annual Spring Hill Country Ham Festival for some of this region’s most savory cuisine, or is that cookin’?
A succulent feast of Southern fare, as well as a slate of children’s and family activities for all ages will be featured.
Monster trucks, a hog-calling contest, even fireworks make this event a must for the weekend calendar.
The Hog Jog will surely keep things interesting, and there will be plenty of live music.
All proceeds received from the community day in Spring Hill will benefit the Tennessee Children’s Home on Branham Hughes Blvd.
A letter from the children’s organization says it all.
“Daily on the TCH campus lives are being changed as we work with at-risk children and youth,” says Bill Alsup, Director of Development and Community Education.
The mission and commitment of TCH, as stated by Alsup in his letter, “is to serve abused, neglected, abandoned, wayward, or orphaned children and youth, as well as their families, in a Christian manner. Utilizing all available resources, we will provide for the physical, social, emotional, spiritual and educational needs of the children and youth we serve in a safe and secure environment.”
Activities begin at a reasonable hour and end at dark. On Saturday plan to visit between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m., and on Sunday things get started a bit later with a noon until 6 p.m. schedule.
