The big rectangular tent rises over Marion Street in the shadow of the Limestone County Courthouse announcing the arrival of the annual Athens Storytelling Festival to Athens, Alabama. Soon throngs of school children from North Alabama will descend on the community during the day on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday for laughs – and unbeknownst to them learning.
The family friendly fun happens in the evening when world renowned storytellers take the stage under the big tent.
