In Downtown Selma this evening, a local church put on a festival and out reach event. It was totally planned, funded, and executed by a private group. There was some discussion by the Town Council about whether or not to allow the event. 20% of the Council was opposed to allowing the event.
There was a huge turnout to experience games, candy, inflatables, food trucks, music, and a lot of fun.
As a town, we should be welcoming events like this and cooperating with private groups. Quite honestly, they put on a bigger and better festival than the town does with events like Railroad Days. we need to let events like happen, not allowing local government to stand in the way.
