All-American Sweet Tea in Hartselle

Published 10:09am Wednesday, July 16, 2014

July’s Sweet Tea Saturday was July 12 in downtown Hartselle.

This monthly event takes place the second Saturday of each month. Hartselle had a lot to offer, including great shopping venues from downtown throughout the city. Attendants were able to fill their empty stomachs with food from great restaurants here in Hartselle.

July’s theme was All-American, which included hot dogs, apple pie and cars new and classic.

The Sweet Tea Saturday committee grilled hot dogs in the new parking lot on Main Street. Corum’s Building and Supply Center furnished a Green Egg to cook on.

Pig Stand sold fried apple pies in the parking lot as well. Eddie Preuitt Ford had cars and trucks on display in the lot as well. Classic cars were featured in front of Town & Country Cleaners in the Hartselle Plaza Shopping Center.

Also, the Huntsville Health Systems’ Mobile Medical Unit visited this Saturday. The medical unit was parked in the new lot on West Main Street as well.

The Farmer’s Market was open for fresh fruits and vegetables as well.
