Mule Day offers plenty of variety



From old western gunslinging to the traditional pony ride, this year’s Mule Day Southern Heritage Festival was filled with family favorites and stunning new attractions, proving that this is one tradition that has something for everyone, even at the celebration of its 37th year. Crowds swarmed the grounds of Callaway Plantation on Saturday to participate in all-day attractions reminiscent of farm life from the pioneer times, enjoy Southern classic cuisine, and even squeeze in unique aspects of local history thanks to the many displays and activities scattered across the grounds. Music and entertainment, and of course farming demonstrations with the mules, were once a again a staple at this year’s festival.
