A picture perfect night welcomed visitors to the 38th Shelburn Community Festival.

Formerly known as Shelburn Old Fashioned Days, the two-day event is centered in the middle of the Sullivan County town.
Vendors and activities highlight Friday night's action, including the Little Miss Shelburn competition, emceed by our own Jesse Walker.
Saturday begins bright and early with a breakfast at 8 a.m., followed by the annual parade at 11 a.m. But things are just getting started.

Organizer Don Ransford says, "Then we have a peddle tractor pull, a big wheel race, starting about noon right here on the slab. uh, there'll be a fishing rodeo tomorrow morning, which the location has changed to the Church of God pond out on 41 and then we'll have kids' games in the afternoon and then there'll be music again late in the evening with an Elvis tribute and then the band, I think they're called the Classics will conclude the evening and that'll wrap our festival up."
The best way to get to the action is turn east into Shelburn from U.S. 41 at the flashing light at Mill street.  That'll take you right to the center of the festival.
