Gatorade Guzzling Camel at Sweet Tater Festival

The greatest attribute of Sweet Tater Festival is always the vendors.

Cullman County Parks Director Doug Davenport along with the Marketing Director Sara Teichmiller devote countless hours recruiting, screening, organizing, administrating and otherwise directing the traffic flow of vendors in and out of Sweet Tater Festival.

The 2017 Festival experienced a significant influx of vendors making it the single largest vendor line-up in the 21-year history of the event.

While we could not possibly get to every vendor to do an in-depth story, we did our best to find the most interesting and topical booths possible.

Our 2017 winner for ‘Most Interesting’ and ‘Most Touching’ vendor booth goes to ‘Feathered Friends Horse & Cockatoo Sanctuary‘ and their remarkable petting zoo.

Feathered Friends offered horse rides and a full petting zoo complete with all sorts of exotic animals to all attendees at the Festival.

The ‘Most Interesting’ part is for their Gatorade Guzzling Camel (see the video below). That was an easy choice.

The ‘Most Touching’ prize was harder to decide; several booths that had benevolent and civic minded intentions at Sweet Tater Festival. Those vendors included Saving Forgotten Warriors and the Cullman Democrats among others.

Feathered Friends gets the nod for utilizing their Petty Zoo to fund their animal sanctuary activities. Rhonda explains all that in beautiful detail in the video below.

Feathered Friends is available for birthday parties, fairs, carnivals as well as school and church events. They can be reached at 256-515-2493.
