Laying Low Festival

The 6th annual Laying Low Festival was held Saturday, October 8, benefiting the Customs House Museum and Cultural Center. The Laying Festival was hosted at the home of Garnett and Nancy Ladd at Daffodil Hill off Madison Street.

The laid-back fundraiser was set outdoors, with the popular backyard game, corn hole with live music provided by The Nightmasters. The band took a break as the majority of the crowed paused to watch the end of the Tennessee Vols football game. The winners of the corn hole tournament received a prize as well as the title of champions. John’s Chicken and Ribs prepared the barbeque and food.

The Laying Low Festival is one of four annual fundraisers that help support exhibits and programs at the Customs House Museum. Guests got to enjoy the opportunity to share the fun with fellow supports of the Custom House Museum to help further their mission.

The Customs House Museum is located in the heart of historic downtown Clarksville and is the second largest general museum in the state of Tennessee. The museum is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sunday from 1-5 p.m. With over 35,000 square feet of exhibit space, hands-on activities and special events, the Customs House has something for everyone.
