Middle Tennessee Christian School will host its 51st Annual Fall Festival on Saturday, September 27, 2014. Fall Festival is one of Middle Tennessee Christian School's oldest fundraisers. The event, held every fall, includes a carnival, merchandise booths, bar-b-que lunch, and a live auction. The very first Fall Festival was held in October of 1963 on the school's front porch beginning at 10 a.m. and ending at 10 p.m.
Middle Tennessee Christian School is an independent school serving approximately 700 students from Rutherford and surrounding counties, pre-school through twelfth grade. Chartered in 1960, the school opened in the fall of 1962. The 2014-15 school year will mark the 52nd year of operation for MTCS. MTCS is accredited by AdvancED, the Southern Association of Independent Schools, and the National Christian School Association.
The Fall Festival is hosted by the MTCS Patrons Association, led by Patrons Presidents Eric and Alice Clements. "We add new activities to the event every year. This year will be one our biggest festivals to date," said Alice Clements. "We hope to see lots of MTCS alumni, as well as, new people from around our community." Visitors to the Fall Festival can enjoy inflatables, a petting zoo, photo booth and lazer tag among many others activities.
One of the day's highlights is the live auction, led by local minister and politician, Teb Batey. Tickets for carnival activities and the BBQ lunch can be purchased at the school, 893-0601, or at the event.
