Mount Holly ‘falls’ into autumn

The Mount Holly Community Development Foundation helped the city welcome days of cooler temperatures, football games and colorful leaves with its fourth annual Autumn on Main festival. Families strolled Main Street while listening to music, visiting booths, playing games and enjoying food and fellowship. Vendors shared work that included pottery, woodworking, photography and jewelry. (Bill Ward/MIM photos)

Flat Top Lane, comprised of keyboardist Aleigha Wheeler, lead singer Terry Wheeler, guitarist Andy Williams, bassist Bob Peterson, percussionist David Ballard and back-up vocalists Wendi Josey and Faith Williams, entertains the crowd.

New to the festival this year, members of the Catawba River Bluegrass Association perform a set.

Kennon Knight, with First Presbyterian Church of Mount Holly, leads young festival-goers in a jam session. The church used the festival to promote its new arts programs, “God’s Young Musicians” and “God’s Young Artists.”

The City of Mount Holly promoted its new recycling plan during the festival. Tally marks on the rear “Mount Holly Recycles” car display the total amount of waste the city has recycled since beginning the program in September. The city’s accompanying booth informed visitors about the biodegradation rate of common trash items.
