Gospel music sounds filled the air as did the smell of barbecue cooking on their respective pits. Children were busy having fun on the rock climb and riding the train up and down Main Street.

Mother Nature also pitched in with some beautiful fall weather. All-in-all it was a perfect day and setting for the annual Marvell Main Street Fall Festival.

One of the booths was manned by artist Brittney Guest. Guest grew up and raised in Marvell. Currently, she is the art director for “Jonesboro Occasions,” the city of Jonesboro's official magazine.

Another booth was giving away books and school supplies for the younger set attending the festival.

For those in the mood for a little early Christmas shopping their were all sorts of arts and crafts and jewelry available for purchase.

A full day of activities concluded with the Levon Helm Down Home Jubilee. The main attraction was J.R. Rodgers and his All-Star Band. Though the concert was free all donations went to the Levon Helm Boyhood Home Restoration Project.

The festival is sponsored each year by the Marvell Civic Club.
