The Rotary Club of Spring Hill/Thompson’s Station for the second time hosted the food and drink festival, rasing money for the civid group’s philanthropic projects in the area. One of the main Rotary efforts is Partners 4 Parks, which aims to expand parks and green space in Thompson’s Station and Spring Hill.

Maury Regional Health was the marquee sponsor, underscoring the benefits of active life styles.

Though temperatures were on the warm side, the weather cooperated for the event, held between the town’s namesake train depot, Circa Restaurant, and H. Clark Distillery.
