This past weekend in Adairville, despite the chill in the air and a little rain, was crammed packed with fun and festivities as the annual Strawberry Festival began. The event drew a large crowd as it always does, full of locals, visitors and elected officials.

Many came out the end of the week to participate in all the food and rides offered this year, one of the pluses for the community’s youth.

The annual Jackson-Dickinson Duel was held again with brothers Dave and Harris Dockins portraying Andrew Jackson and Charles Dickinson. Jackson, who went on to become the 7th President of the United States, shot and killed Dickinson in 1806 on the Red River in Logan County.
