Ready to Scare Up Some Fun at Boo-Town?

The Tennessee Medieval Faire invites you to a new outdoor family Halloween event called Boo-Town.  It is a merry-not-scary treat village, with crafts, food, beer, and entertainment as well as an optional haunted hayride. 
If you like safe trick-or-treating and costumed characters, Boo-Town is for you,” said Barrie Paulson, VP-Manager.  “From Steampunk to Cosplay, Pirates to Princesses, anyone at any age can have fun.  Be a kid again and dress however you like!
Nightly entertainment includes a patron costume parade, treat booths, a bouncy house, games, music and dance, spooky story-telling and a magic show.  Crafts, food, hot and cold beverages will be available for purchase.

For the more adventurous, there is an optional haunted hayride.  Wagons will be pulled by an antique tractor through the deep, dark woods.  What ghosts and ghouls await?

Organizers are seeking additional craft vendors, businesses, non-profit organizations and volunteers to complete the treat village.  Approved non-profit organizations will get free booth space this year.   By working the event, volunteers can enjoy the treat village for free or earn money for their organization.  If interested, contact the organizers now at 865-248-8414.
Boo-Town show dates are the last two weekends in October:  23-24, 29-30-31.  Hours are 5-10pm EDT.  General admission ticket prices are $5 for ages 2 to 12; $8 for ages 13 and up.  Free parking is included.  The haunted hayride is an additional $10 for ages 8 and up only.

Near Sellout Crowd Thrilled With Restless Heart Performance

With only a few balcony seats left available, Restless Heart was welcomed to the Princess Theatre Saturday night.  The legendary country group seemed happy and ready to play as they hit the stage; after stepping off their bus as the Tennessee game ended!
The group played all their best known hits, and were on stage for about 2 hours.  They also did a medley of songs by groups that helped propel their 30+ year career.  As front man Larry Stewart commented, "these groups allowed our bus to follow their bus into many venues across the country."
The current band consist of:

  • Larry Stewart – lead vocals, rhythm guitar

  • John Dittrich* – drums, background vocals

  • Paul Gregg – bass guitar, background vocals

  • Dave Innis – piano, keyboards, rhythm guitar, background vocals

  • Greg Jennings - lead guitar, background vocals

  • *John was replaced last night by Chris Golden.  John was out with some back issues and will return to play with the band soon.
    Harriman was busy last evening with a Princess concert and the Harriman City Fire Department's Haunted House going on at the old hospital.  It is always good to see Downtown alive and enjoying themselves.  Even Simply Sweet Bakery was open serving pastries, coffee, snacks, and adult beverages!  It was a good evening all around!
    Greg White (seen photo bombing the group) of Music City Knoxville, who has brought many acts to the Princess, was well pleased with the turnout last night.  I'm sure this will encourage him to continue bringing entertainment to our Princess, and we need to show support to his, and all, performances.  There's no where around that your can get this quality of sound for these kind of prices!
    And speaking of sound, they have finally got the sound quality to match the Princess acoustics!  Last night's sound did not overdrive the eardrums, and I still say the best seats in the house are in the balcony.

    So, enough of my rattling on, here are the photos!
    Hope to see you next you can see, we always have a great time!
