Herrin Car Show Presents Cartober Fest
HERRIN -- Folks in Herrin had the chance to get out and enjoy a car show Saturday at the first annual Cartober Fest. Roughly 30 different vehicles were on display for crowds to view at the Herrin City Park. Organizers also brought in some live entertainment, food, and face-painting.
The event is a fundraiser for the Herrin High School Drama Club. Organizers say without an event like this, they wouldn't be able to fund the productions that they put on stage every year.
"I have faith in our drama club. I have faith that we'll be able to raise enough money to keep our program going," says Freshman Christina Gomez.
"Wouldn't this be a great idea, a unique, completely new fundraiser that the high school has never seen. And so lo and behold, we have Cartober Fest," explains Tammy Pullam, the high school drama teacher.
Pullum says one of their drama productions can cost the school thousands of dollars. If you would like to help you can make donations at the high school...
