After about a decade, the town of Burns is bringing back its annual Hoedown on Saturday. Mayor Landon Mathis said he wanted to bring the annual fall celebration back because he remembers it so fondly from his youth as a time that people in Burns got together to celebrate. Burns Fire Chief Nathan Stringer and police Chief Paul McCallister have worked together to get the new Hoedown organized. The event gets started around 2:30 in the Burns Community Center gym where Denton’s Electronics has provided an 80-inch television that will be showing the UT-Alabama football game. At 3:00 there will be a Cruise-In featuring classic and vintage cars and the local Topless in Tennessee Jeep Club in the Burns Church of Christ parking lot. A Jeep driver himself, McCallister said there will be a couple of junk cars on the old skateboard park pad where Jeep drivers can try their hand at car-crushing. There will be prizes given away throughout the afternoon. Several challenges have already been issued for the Chili Cook-Off and the Corn Hole Tournament. Chili will be cooked on site and signups and practice for the Corn Hole Tournament begin at 3 pm with the tournament at 5:00 at the Mark Whitaker Football Field. The winners get to take home specially made commemorative corn hole boards. Following the football game, the community center gym will host live bluegrass and country music and dancing starting at 6 pm. At dark there will be hayrides, a bonfire, Halloween treats for kids and more. The Burns Cowboys junior pro teams will be operating concessions and there also will be kettle corn, funnel cakes and pork rinds as well as several craft vendors.
