Stewart County holds Eagle Fest in Dover, Tn

 

Remembering the past, Honoring the present

Eagle Fest in Stewart County at Dover, TNDover, TN – I love small town festivals they have a certain je ne sais quois, a charm, an innocence that you just don’t find in festivals held in larger towns. Don’t get me wrong I love Clarksville’s Rivers and Spires Festival, and adore Riverfest. But Dover’s Eagle Fest was a lot of fun too. The festival is held Memorial Day weekend and the events continued non-stop.

The festival opened with your typical parade. However it wasn’t overrun with rampant commercialism. Another charming aspect was that the children along the route were simply showered with candy; the various Beauty Queens were tossing it out by the handful. The Grand Marshal was a veteran A.J. Dalton.
