A 21-year festival tradition of the Old Depot, "Fall by the Tracks" will be held on Saturday, october 4, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

"This is a family fun day, with activities for children and adults," says Jim Griffin, vice president of the Association and event organizer. Major activities include a 5K race, refreshments and craft demonstrations.

Old Depot Association is a Black Mountain community-based and volunteer-run nonprofit organization that oversees operation of the Gallery, a showcase for Western North Carolina artists and crafters. It is open each year from April through December. Started in 1976 to protect and maintain the century-old Train Depot, the organization and the festival support the teaching of mountain and heritage crafts and the arts - music, drama, and fine arts - in the Swannanoa Valley schools.

Please call (828) 669-6583 or visit www.olddepot.org for times of the Saturday demonstrations. Old Depot is located at 207 Sutton Avenue at Cherry Street in the heart of historic Black Mountain.
