First Saturday organizers hope for better weather for September event


While rain deterred the first two planned First Saturday events on Gadsden’s Tuscaloosa Avenue, organizers are praying for better weather on Sept. 7, for the next scheduled First Saturday event on the grounds of Carver Co-mmunity Center.

There will be a kids’s zone, entertainment, vendors, food, fun and the chance for fellowship from 1 to 6 p.m. Sept. 7.

A motorcycle club from Anniston will be on hand to show off their bikes.

First Saturday events were scheduled in July and August, but rain doused the plans for those afternoons.

Organizers hope that won’t be the case Sept. 7, and for upcoming First Saturdays, when they plan to continue the community festival each month, even into the winter months.

There is an annual Christmas parade on Tuscaloosa Avenue, organizers say, and they want to make First Saturday events in December coincide with that annual parade.
Everyone is invited to this inaugural event.
