Earlier this week AM 1180 reported that Cedar Bluff, Alabama would no longer be hosting their annual "Liberty Day" celebration that would draw thousands to the shores of Weiss Lake for a Independence Day celebration with fireworks.  The town said that they lost their funding and could not get donations to cover the cost of the event.

This week, another Alabama town announced the end of a long-running event.  Ider, Alabama in neighboring DeKalb County will no longer be hosting their annual "Mule Day."

Ider celebrated Ider Mule Day every Labor Day for 30 years. The event attracted 7,000 visitors to the small community on Sand Mountain in DeKalb County. But, after three decades it's coming to a close. Rising costs, overall expenses, and tremendous volunteer hours contributed to the decision to end the run.

The one-day festival was designed to highlight the agricultural heritage of the community and featured a parade and 'mule-pulls" along with music and vendors.
