We must announce the cancellation of our annual 9-1-1 Festival that was scheduled for June 5 & 6, 2020. Our fundraising efforts were suspended a month ago out of respect for our local businesses and industries who were facing uncertain times all the while we all were in hopes this crisis would soon pass. Although we would like to think that the end of this pandemic is closer than when it began, we believe it would be irresponsible to continue under these circumstances.
The first 9-1-1 phone call was made from Haleyville on February 16, 1968. Festival honors all police, fire, and emergency personnel and includes a street dance on Friday, parade, arts and crafts, a car show, children’s activities, food on Sat., 8 a.m.-until. Free. June 5-6, 2020.
