Saturday, October 27, 2018 from 10:00 - 2:00
On the Square, Headland, AL.

A fun packed day for dogs & dog lovers!

PawsFest 2018 is an event for animal lovers usually held the last Saturday of March each year but because of weather last 3 years we have changed the date.  This year the date is October 27 from 10:00 - 2:00 on the Square in Downtown Headland, Alabama so join us for our 11th Pawsfest and our 2nd Howl-o-ween event. 

Headland's Harvest Day was a gracious relief to many after Hurricane Michael. The City of Headland Beautification, Street, and Water Departments along with Mayor Marler and volunteers worked hard to get the Square ready following the storm. Thankfully Alabama Power was also able to restore power to Downtown Headland as well. We had over 100 vendors, the New South Cruisers Car Show, Live Music and Entertainment, rides and inflatables, carriage rides, and the Making Alabama Bicentennial Traveling Exhibit to provide over 4000 guests with joy and fun. We are so grateful to all who made Harvest Day a success and to those who attended.

The entertainment line-up:

  • To the Pointe Dance Academy
  • HHS and Pee Wee Cheerleaders
  • Headland High School Band
  • Hurst's Tae Kwon Do
  • Tri-State Community Orchestra
  • Mel Williams
  • Conrad Family
  • Jessie Lynn "Alabama's Singing Cowgirl"

October 6, 2018 - This year's Fly-In at the Headland Municipal Airport was a great success. The airport was colored with beautiful planes and aircraft in an array of color flown in by pilots, Airport Manager Pete Crews provided a tasty Pilots' Breakfast for them at arrival. Boy Scout Troop 123presented the flag and honored us by saying the Pledge of Allegiance before Mayor Ray Marler addressed the crown. Then more of the fun continued with Friends of Army Aviation took attendees on flights over Headland to see our beautiful city. There was music provided by Ram Radio and food vendors too. It was a beautiful day at the Headland Municipal Airport! We can't wait for next year when the taxiway has been expanded; more space and more fun!
