Melissa Seales decided eight years ago she would do something special for the residents of the Atmore area and nearly a decade later her idea, a festival called Art at the Farm, is still going strong.

Saturday marked the eighth annual installment of the event, which is held each fall at Seales farm in Walnut Hill and if the crowd is any indication, the festival is as popular as ever.

“It was a good crowd,” Seales said. “ It was a beautiful day.   My vendors were very happy. Lots of people came and sat and ate and listened to music.”

Seales said this year was great after rainy weather during last year’s event, adding she always enjoys hosting event s on her property.

“I always have a good time,” Seales said. “It was a treat and the weather was perfect.”

Seales will be hosting a concert at her farm Dec. 17 featuring the band Modern El Dorados. The concert begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door or $7 in advance. For more information call (850) 207-2100 or (850) 501-4986.
