Mentone hosts 34th annual Colorfest

By Tyler Pruett

MENTONE, Ala.—Mentone is hosting the 34th Annual Colorfest this weekend, Oct. 16-18. Throughout the weekend of live music and local cuisine, a steady stream of music from talented local musicians featured in the “Sounds of Mentone” can be heard in the Brow Park Pavilion.

Likewise, look for the “Taste of Mentone” signs when you’re ready to enjoy some of the excellent local restaurants. There is an impressive line-up of musical talent throughout the weekend. Other events include arts and crafts, nightly bonfires, a scarecrow-building competition, a town scavenger hunt and the 5K Color Run.

“For 34 years, the town of Mentone has celebrated its annual Colorfest; a fall celebration featuring over 20 bands and countless from the local area,” Mentone Area Preservation Association President Ray Padgett said. “While the town benefits financially from the festival, the most important benefit is bringing our community together.”

Padgett says the town is expecting a turnout of more than 10,000.
