Taste of the Mountains Street Festival

Posted: Updated:

Everything from barbeque and bluegrass bands, to bonsai trees lined Main Street in Madison Saturday.

People of all ages packed the town for the 22nd Annual Taste of the Mountains Street Festival. The Madison County Chamber of Commerce sponsors the event each year, and even provided free parking at the high school with shuttles to the festival.

We found one couple, festival shirt designers Annie and Mack Rowe, who moved to Madison from northern Virginia.  They call themselves 'refugees' from city life.

"Peacefulness, beauty, I'm a water-color painter and this is perfect for painting, so we're very happy here...it's beautiful, it's very calm, very peaceful, we're not going anywhere," Rowe stated.

While many crafts and items were for sale at the festival, several nonprofit groups were also set up to raise money for their causes.
