Knoxville’s Storytelling Festival is coming up this week. From October 31 through November 2, the event will feature several Midwestern storytellers, including Darrin Crow, Kathe Brinkmann, Andre Heuer, among others. The Festival will kick off Thursday night at The Swamp Fox Pub and Grille with an adult costume dinner party and ghost stories, from 6 to 9. Friday and Saturday, storytellers will gather in Auld Park and share stories, and there will be a pancake breakfast and pie contest on Saturday. Vasquez says they are still in need of help, in the form of generators, drop cords and volunteers. Contact Nola Vasquez at 641-891-8611 for more information.
