Hot and humid weather didn’t hinder hundreds of people from attending the annual Heart of Trenton Main Street Festival Saturday morning and afternoon, with everyone involved calling it a success.
Food booths, yard sale booths and other vendors lined Main Street in Trenton and several homeowners in and around Trenton took advantage of the occasion to have their own yard sale. It is perhaps the biggest day on the calendar for Trenton businesses, including Trenton Clayworks, where co-owner Ashley Scriven said the event lived up to its reputation.
The store did pottery demonstrations on the sidewalk and there was a steady stream of customers who walked in to see what was inside.
Meanwhile, Denise Shivers owns Quilt and Sew and Golden Threads in Trenton and put the event into perspective.
Ms. Shivers said business was up at her stores, as well.
The Town and Country Homemakers raffled off a quilt and the Christian County Animal Shelter brought puppies needing forever homes. Three of five puppies had found homes by noon. The shelter took adoptable cats to the Christian County Justice Center, where the First Annual Critter Crawl benefited Max’s Hope Pet Rescue.
