What is Fall Festival and Heritage Day?

The Fall Festival and Heritage Day celebration is an event held in Millington, TN, to celebrate the culture and history of the Mid-South. It was created to promote heritage, culture and appreciation of the outdoors through the support of local businesses and the community.
