After the race, please plan to stay and visit the Covered Bridge Festival in downtown Oneonta.  Our streets will be lined with vendors selling everything from crafts to hand-made clothes.

If you're hungry,  there will be a pancake breakfast at Lester Memorial United Methodist Church benefitting the Children's Center of Oneonta. There will be food sold at the festival as well.

Before you leave Blount County, be sure to visit our covered bridges, Palasades Park, Rickwood Caverns, or any of our other county treasures.
