Volunteers needed for inaugural Day’s Gap Fest

Posted

OAKMAN — Oakman leaders said they need volunteers for the town’s inaugural Day’s Gap Fest.

The festival — designed to bring the community and other county residents together — will be held Friday, Oct. 13, and Saturday, Oct. 14, in downtown Oakman. There are currently 18 bands and roughly 70 vendors confirmed to take part in the event.

Town leaders say they can use help to direct traffic during the festival and to fulfill other needs.

“I wish we had more participation, people in leadership positions that would come down and help out when they have an opportunity,” Oakman Mayor Cory Franks said. “If people in the community have the free time, they are more than welcome to come down to city hall ... and see what they can do to help.”

Anyone interested can call Oakman Town Hall at (205) 622-3232 to inquire about volunteering during the festival or to purchase a Day’s Gap Fest T-shirt for $15 each.

“We’re going to keep the ball rolling,” Franks said.

Confirmed sponsors for Day’s Gap Fest include Alabama Power, Pinnacle Bank, First Bank of Parrish, accountant Don Wallace, Bankhead Land and Timber, Jim Woods Automotive, Collins-Burke Funeral Home and First Bank of Jasper.

Registration is still open for the car and motorcycle show portion of the festival. Interested parties may call (205) 622-3230 or (205) 388-7298 to register. Interested vendors for the event should call town hall.

A full preview of the Day’s Gap Fest, along with a complete entertainment line up and vendor preview, will be in an upcoming edition of the Eagle.
