Tennesse Polk Salad Festival and Pageant Reign Ends
(Excerpted From the November 5th, 2012 Edition Of The Roane County News); Author: Cindy Simpson)-- The popular springtime festival at Harriman’s David Webb Riverfront Park is being retired.
David Webb, the park’s namesake, has helmed the festival since its inception in 2008, when it spun off from the initial Miss Polk Salad pageant.
“We are trying to encourage him to do things for himself. He’s 76 years old, and he needs to be having some fun,” said Webb’s daughter, Debbie Mee.
“We just want him to have more time with family. It is hard for him, but he knows it is the best thing.”
