Continuing a tradition: RVs return for Fiddlers
Any true Limestone County native knows one of the telltale signs of the coming Tennessee Valley Old Time Fiddlers Convention is the arrival of a fleet of recreational vehicles covering every inch of available space on the campus of Athens State University.
One of those RVs belongs to Andrea and Stan Patterson of Madison. The Pattersons figure they’ve been attending the Fiddlers Convention for the better part of 20 years. This year, they’re parked on the east end of Beasley Field in a classic silver Airstream.
“We love to come up here,” Andrea told The News Courier Wednesday afternoon while Stan finished setting up the campsite.
