We happened to come across this annual event as we were passing through Tennessee. A wagon train parade kicked off the festivities, then we headed to the fairgrounds where we saw mules of every color and size. There were log pulling competitions, mule driving shows, mule races, music concerts, and the usual multitude of craft and food vendors. It was fun to discover this large community of mule lovers. We have since learned that mule festivals are held in many cities across the country.
