Noon On the Square

Every September the folks in downtown Paris have a little party around our courthouse and it's called "Noon On the Square."  It's sponsored by Commercial Bank.

You bring a chair or sit on the steps of our beautiful courthouse.  They provide a band and music for your entertainment.

Beverages are available from the Downtown Paris Association.  (All these photos are from last year.  Can't wait to see what we get this year.)

Food! Yes they have food! Can you smell how wonderful this is.   Food is provided by Project Graduation.
Every noon in September on the courthouse lawn in downtown Paris, Tennessee.
 You never know who you will run into ... so, y'all come!
Tomorrow, Friday, September 7th is the first one.
Music will be provided by Branded Country.
