GORDONSVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - It was a spectacular day for Gordonsville’s Famous Fried Chicken Festival. Plenty of people gathered together for the annual event at the Gordonsville Fire Company Fair Grounds.

The town is known for its fried chicken which was served to passengers of trains stopping in town during the late 19th and early 20th centuries by local women carrying platters of the delicacy on their heads.

Those in attendance got their fair share of fried chicken and were able to shop at local vendors.
