Wehle Center’s Spring Festival Day Is April 6
Twice a year, the Wehle Land Conservation Center hosts outdoor festivals celebrating Alabama’s heritage and beautiful rolling countryside. The Spring Festival Day will be held Saturday, April 6, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. and is free to the public. Visitors are invited to step back in time and celebrate this all day, free event featuring food, fun, and old time outdoor activities. Included in the festivities are fiddle and hammered dulcimer music, Southern gospel singers, and the Poarch Creek Indians dancers. Children should be thoroughly entertained by period dressed pioneers demonstrating finger weaving, powder horn making, leather works, saddle making, and many other historical activities. Food vendors will be there serving Bullock County’s best BBQ, and children under 12 will receive a free hotdog and drink.
The Wehle Center, a hidden natural jewel located in east central Alabama, is home to the longest covered bridge in the state. There are many hiking trails and fishing ponds (Alabama fishing license regulations apply) to enjoy as well. The Center is approximately 5 miles southeast of Midway, Alabama in Bullock County on County Road 47. Take U.S. Hwy. 82 from either Montgomery or Eufaula to Midway and follow the "Nature Center" signs.
