Several Events Planned For This Weekend

There won't be a shortage of things to do this weekend in the Cookeville area. The annual Fall Fun Fest kicks off this afternoon and includes the Cookeville Cook-off Barbecue contest. The Fun Fest continues tomorrow and, as part of the event this year, a remembrance of 9/11 will be held on the main stage at 10 am. Meanwhile, the Tennessee Top Model competition will take place Saturday evening at the Cookeville Performing Arts Center. And, for those who want to drive to Overton County, Standing Stone State Park will be hosting the 28th National Rolley Hole Marble Championship. Organizers say the contest draws some of the country’s best players, and the festival includes kids’ games, marble making, a swap meet, tournament play, demonstrations, music and food. Registration is required for the Rolley Hole Tournament.
