SEALE, Ala. (WRBL) – It was a day of music, food and fun down in Seale for the Old Russell County Courthouse Labor Day Fair.
The party wasn’t held in Columbus, but hundreds of people flocked to the old courthouse in Seale for the annual festival.
There was food – barbecue, mac and cheese, and good old boiled peanuts. And there was a lot of music.
Crowds this year have been close to pre-pandemic levels — something that excites Russell County Commission Chair Chance Corbett.
“We are so fortunate to win all the vendors we win. And the people who come out, too,” Corbett said. “We’ve come to a point where we’re running out of space with vendors. We need to create other space to accommodate the vendors.”
The annual event is a fundraiser for the old courthouse, which is now used as an events center.
