RC Cola MoonPie Festival and 10M & 5K Run
A day of fun for young and old alike celebrating three southern traditions: RC Colas, Moon Pies and Bell Buckle, Tennessee- Close To Home But A World Away.
Every year for over 26 years, the Bell Buckle Chamber of Commerce has released new, original artwork for each festival. Yes, they even released artwork in 2020 featuring RC and MoonPie with facemasks and social distancing!
The 2021 artwork for the Bell Buckle RC-MoonPie Festival and 10M & 5K Run is aptly themed “Making Lemonade Out Of Lemons”. With the Chattanooga Bakery re-releasing their lemon flavored MoonPie for the first time in a decade and with 2020 being, well, whatever 2020 was, Lemonade just hit the spot literally and figuratively!
The artwork will be featured on all the Festival and Race t-shirts that will be available at the Bell Buckle Chamber of Commerce booth on the festival grounds located at the Captain Rodney stage. While doing some spring cleaning during the 2020 shut down, some shirts from past festivals were found and these limited supplies will be for sale at the Chamber booth as well. Vintage anyone?!
Be sure to get your soon to be collectible 2021 Bell Buckle RC-MoonPie t-shirt and other Bell Buckle and MoonPie memorabilia on Saturday, June 19th before they run out. Because when they’re gone, they’re gone…..unless they do more spring cleaning!
