COSBY—Last weekend's beautiful weather made it three in a row for Cocke County's fall festivals, and hundreds took advantage of the opportunity to attend the annual On Cosby festival.

Beginning Friday, the annual event welcomed hundreds of local schoolchildren for a day of fun, food, and entertainment. Saturday brought even more visitors, many of whom returned Sunday.

Nearly 100 vendors displayed handcrafted items ranging from beautifully carved walking stick to hand-turned wooden bowls to UT wear to Christmas decorations.

Added to the display of color and creative were dozens of restored vintage vehicles and tractors, antique engines, and even a flatbed trailer holding eighteen restored pedal tractors in a rainbow of colors.
